Hard working Sharotte K. has been operating a new garment business selling women's suits, wedding gowns and more for 20 years in Buyanja town. This determined and innovative lady has by all standards tried to maintain the business that she started with little capital when she was a housewife.

Her main business limitation is having a small stock of clothing, so she is requesting this loan to purchase a greater variety of garments that will attract more customers. The additional profits from an expanded line will enable her to meet her family's expenses as she considers starting up a poultry business.

Sharotte belongs to a group of members who hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
