M. Irene, aged 36, has been running her clothes and poultry sales businesses for the last eight years in Lubowa-Kampala. Irene began as a teacher and a politician, and she had always heard the oft-used classroom adage – 'hard work pays'. Irene wanted to use this as a precept in her business and used it she has. Her clothes business brings in 100,000 UGX weekly and she is upbeat about her future business prospects in the wake of getting this loan, which will give her a solid start-up. This married mother of five wants to buy more clothes for resale. She believes that with more clothes sales she will be able to earn more money.

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.
