Rubaare Twimukye Tukore Group, Ntungamo
In this Group: Jolly, Kellen, Alice, Odesi, Medius, Jane, Night, Lydia
Used clothing is in high demand in Uganda. Jolly A., a hard-working and energetic woman of 30, has begun tapping into that demand by buying consignments of used clothing for resale. She is a member of the Rubaare Twimukye Tukore loan group, whose eight members we see here. Jolly has done very well with her business, as proved by the 160,000 Ugandan shillings she makes monthly. She is taking a long view and has drawn up a plan to expand her used clothing business into a much larger operation, and is applying for this loan to help make that expansion possible. Her goal is to be able to pay for the education of her four children, and help her family live a better life.

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.
