In this Group: Robinah, Iddi, Kabatongole, Peluce, Venerandah, Alozio, Beatrice, Proscovia, Bonabona, James, Giladys
A transparent and very hardworking Robinah K., aged 50 years, is a married mother of eight children. She operates a retail shop, selling general merchandise for home use like plastics, basins, jerrycans, cups, salt, soap and more, from Rwamukora, Kyenjojo town. She started this business five years ago and at the end of every month, she is able to pocket profits to the tune of 200,000 Ugandan shillings.

Her main drawback has been having a small amount of stock that cannot match the purchasing rate of the customers. Robinah is therefore seeking a loan that she figures will help her stock more goods that will satisfy the customers’ high demand and also transform her enterprise into a big enterprise as she looks at opening up more branches.

Being very committed to the business with good customer care, she hopes to increase her sales revenue. This will bring about a transformation of her business and enable her to achieve a self-sustaining life and cater to her family requirements, especially fulfilling her dream of educating her children to higher levels.

Robinah K. appears at the top left corner in the small photo and she also appears in the big group photo.

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.
