K. Sarah is a business lady managing two businesses: a poultry business and a business selling fruits and vegetables in the city centre in Kampala. She is a hardworking devoted married lady with ten children and six dependants. Sarah has been operating the businesses for a very long time, except the fruit selling business which is the most recent one. She is grateful for her loans because she has been able to educate all her children through university and most of them are now bank managers and accountants. Sarah needs a loan to buy more feed and chicks for farm expansion, as well as to buy more fruit for resale. Sarah is the leader of her lending group in Nansana.

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.
