Mary N., age 49, belongs to Kyaliwajala Group-Kampala. Mary is a high-spirited entrepreneurial woman with a decade-long track record running her restaurant in Kyaliwajala-Kampala. Mary credits close friends who she says helped her summon the courage, diligence, and resolve to be successful. Agriculture was her first business. Mary also operates a poultry business. In a week this happily-married mother of five can earn up to 120,000 shillings (UGX). She feels this loan will go a long way in empowering her, and she will use it to pay school fees for her children and to revamp her restaurant business.

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.
