Blessing Development Group-Kampala

It is good to know that one can make decisions running their own business, which is what 27-year-old M. Stephern discovered five years ago when he started a secretarial bureau. Prior to that, he was like many other young jobless Ugandans who spend their days looking for jobs. He did secretarial studies as a course at the university. His customers are mostly students around Mpigi Town. In a week, he makes as much as 200,000 shillings and also ekes out more profit from selling crops like maize. Happily married, he has no children yet so his responsibilities are limited. With this loan, he will be able to buy one more computer to make his work easier.

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.
