Rwakashoma Tea Growers, Bushenyi Group
In this Group: Juliet, Gordorn, Naboth, Lena, Topha, Elias, Nicholas
N. Juliet is the leader of her lending group in Bushenyi. She is 42 years old and married, with 9 children of whom 8 are still in school. Juliet has a business of selling bananas from her home area by the side of the road, and she is happy to say that she continually has customers. She is able to make 30,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) as weekly profits in addition to the income received from her retail shop.

She is also a farmer and has banana plantations. This is one reason she needs a loan: to be able to mulch her plantations for increased output. She also wants to buy more matooke (steamed green plantain) for resale since at the moment, she cannot get enough to sell to her customers.

Juliet appears in a Red T-shirt in the group photo; she is a very hard-working and determined lady. She is happy that she has enough food for her family and she is seeing her children through 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.
