"If you believe, you can achieve!"--That’s an adage one famous musician often used to inspire his listeners. With a sense of self esteem, as 40-year-old N. Imeldah has learned, one has every opportunity for success in anything he or she does. Success can be in anybody’s grasp if only we believe, she points out.

Over the course of the last 15 years, she has been a testament to the fact that with self conviction, determination and resolve, one will succeed. In the cut-throat competitive business of tailoring that she in involved in, one needs those virtues to ensure not only short-term but long-term success.

At the threshold of the mid 90’s, Imeldah was into poultry. She at length used savings from that business to start her current business, which she has been operating in Kisega-Kayunga. She is still eking profits from her poultry business. In a week, she makes profits to the tune of 90,000 shillings. With this loan, she wants to buy more textile material for making clothes.

She is married with 5 children, 3 of whom attend school.

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.
