S. Juliet is 50 years old and married with four children; she also takes care of two orphans. Juliet is a businesswoman who has had a wholesale shop in Lweza for one year. Although the business is faced with a lot of price fluctuations, she is able to make a 200,000 UGX weekly profit, which is mostly attributed to good customer care and the help of loans. Juliet dreams of ensuring that her business continues to grow and of having a prosperous family. Juliet needs a loan to be able to restock her wholesale shop with more goods.

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.
