N. Jean, 45 years old, has had her retail shop in Ntungamo Town for 12 years. She started this business out of savings from her salary as a clerk. It goes without saying that hard work and determination have brought her this far. She has also been getting additional profits from her catering business. She is fully able to live within the ways and means of her business. To reach this milestone, she has gone through the many challenges that plague all businesses. In her case, being a widow, she has had to grapple with the operational costs of her business alone. Her strong resolve has seen her through all this. All her children describe her as a loving mother who has seen them through adversity and who has, most importantly, given them an education. In a week, her business generates reliable profits of 200,000 UGX. With this loan, she wants to buy more retail stock such as bars of soap, plastics, bags of sugar and edibles for her shop.

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.
