U. Edivinah is a hard working lady with a strong drive to succeed. She is divorced but has managed to take care of her 3 children, all still in school and between the ages of 18 to 3, while she cares for 2 orphans. Edivinah has had a grocery business where she sells vegetables, beans, ground nuts and bananas for 15 years now. She is now able to make weekly profits of 100,000 Ugandan shillings (about $47 US) yet she started with capital of 50,000 shillings.

She has a dream of transforming from retail to wholesale so that she can be able to make greater profits from her sales. She needs a loan to be able to buy more produce for resale since having a bigger quantity of stock works so well for her and her family.

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
