* not pictured
23-year-old N. Hadijjah has always taken exception to failure. Even if she is only three years into her beauty salon business, her sense of optimism has never been this high. With 400,000 shillings accruing to her business as monthly income, she is in a way bearing witness to what she preaches. With complete belief in her own worth, she has made progress. She credits her mother with setting her off and instilling in her values that she has come to manifest in real life and in this case her business.

In her salon, she mostly does hair dressing and weaving. At her young age, her single status is the last thing she is worried about, even with friends telling her to marry the father of her only child. With this loan, she wants to purchase more lotions in bulk for her beauty salon.

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.
