A. Janiffer, who leads this loan group, is 41 years old and went into business selling snacks six years ago. She works in Lweza-Mukono with the support of her husband, who strongly supported her decision to go into business. They are the proud parents to six lively and healthy children, all of whom attend school. She supplements her income by raising pigs. She works hard, but is kept going by a strong sense of purpose and determination. She now earns 50,000 Ugandan shillings a week, and plans to use this loan to buy more potatoes, cassava and pigs to sell. She also wants to expand her business by selling chickens as well.

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.
