Mirembe Katenga, Kyenjojo Group
In this Group: Lawrence, Wycliff, Samuel, Herbert, Apollo, Nathan, Juma, Edward, Haryensi, Levi, Francis
Hardworking M. Lawrence started up his motorcycle transport business four years ago. As motorcycles are a very common means of conveyance in timely situations like traffic jams and bad road systems in Uganda, he has made good profit out of it, earning 200,000 Ugandan shillings.

Lawrence’s main setback is that he needs to expand the business through buying additional motorcycles to allocate them in different stages so as to increase his revenue. With this loan he hopes to achieve that and thus will be able to take care of his family.

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.
