* not pictured
Before she began her food-selling business 12 years ago in Buikwe in Lugazi, Hadijah N. was more of a business rolling stone. She subsisted on occasional pieces of work, like the selling of second-hand clothing to the selling of food. At present, 48-year-old Hadijah N. is a master at her food-selling business.

Hadijah is a married mother to two children and in a week she makes 100,000 shillings. With this loan, she wants to reinvigorate her business with bulk purchases of lucrative cash crops like sweet potatoes, cassava and maize, that she will, in the course of transacting, resell.

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.
