Nsasa Development Group, Mukono
In this Group: Leocadia, Derrick, Betty*, Gorrette, Rose, Sauda, George, Harriet*, Gladys, Mastullah, Sharon
* not pictured
N. Leocadia is 35 years old and is married with four school-going children. She runs a five-year-old dairy business selling milk in Nsasa, Mukono. In a week, this cheerfully approachable woman reckons she makes 90,000 shillings.

The major challenge Leocadia has faced since she began has been the low volume of milk supplies she gets from her suppliers, most of them small-scale cattle keepers. With this loan, she wants to buy her own thoroughbred cow that will give her enough milk so that she does not run out of supplies.

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.
