Fatumah's Group
In this Group: Fatumah, Christopher, Diana, Gorret, Florence, Regina, Fred
Fatumah is the leader of her lending group in Lugazi. She is a determined, hard-working lady with a three-year-old brewing business that she runs from her home. She brews waragi (distilled from bananas, cassava, millet or sugar cane), tonto (green bananas and roasted sorghum) and malwa (millet). She sells her brews mostly to bar owners but also to customers who prefer to take them home. She uses her savings and profits to cover most of her and her children’s needs.

Since she is wholly in charge of paying her children’s school fees, Fatumah is requesting a loan to help pay for these particular costs. She will use her profits from her successful brewing business to pay back her loan.

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.
