45-year-old K. Irene is happily married with three children. She has been selling clothes for the last twenty years in Nyabuhikye in Ibanda district. Twenty years down the road, she is still going strong in her business and this is all down to her hard work, diligence and dedication. 200,000 shillings is what she makes in a month.

This longevity speaks volumes about her chances at future success. With this loan, she is looking at buying more clothes that she will eventually resell to her increasing clientele.

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.
