* not pictured
In a certain village of Bwera, Ibanda there is a determined lady named T. Christine, aged 39 years, a go-getter businesswoman who has been dealing in general merchandise in a retail shop. This stickler for hard work is also a married mother of 3 school-going children and has been running her business for over 2 years. With this experience behind her, she has managed to subdue most of the uncertain adversities that have threatened to play havoc with her business. In a month, her business generates a profit of 240,000 Ugandan shillings.

This to all intents and purposes is a low figure. What has helped her as she operates her business have been her exceptional customer relationship skills. Now, she is taking a long view with an aim of maximizing her small profits. She figures this loan will come in handy in helping her buy more stock as currently she sells small household items like sugar, soap, and so on.

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.
