I. Clovis is a 42-year-old married father of 8 boisterous schoolchildren. To shoulder his responsibility for providing for them, he has over the course of the last 10 years been operating a home products retail shop in Butiti Trading centre, Mubende District, alongside a butcher shop. His business has not been without setbacks since its beginning; he has had to bear with myriad challenges, such as the lack of steady income inflow. However, his business has remained active. This he attributes principally to the good understanding he has struck with his clientele.

Before his current businesses, Clovis was a hawker in Kampala, moving with his goods from place to place. In a month, Clovis says he makes more than 320,000 Ugandan shillings, a figure he admits will not substantively make his business grow in the near future. He is therefore seeking a loan to lend countenance to his business so that he is able to do restocking for his shop.

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.
