Miriam H. started a clothing shop five years ago that has experienced high levels of growth in recent years. She is 32 years old and married with six kids, all enrolled in primary school. In order to keep up with customer demand, she is requesting a loan of 1,000,000 Ugandan shillings to purchase more inventory. She is very hardworking and hopes her business will continue to grow so she may one day be able to pay for her children to be university educated.
Miriam H. is the leader of her group in Lugazi.

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.
