* not pictured
A determined and hard working K. Scovia, who is married with four children, is vibrant as she speaks of her agricultural businesses in Kizinda, Bushenyi. She belongs to Kyanyakatura Mother's Union and she owns a banana plantation and other agricultural farms that include cattle grazing and banana sales, all of which generate income for her family. These businesses earn approximately 160,000 Ugandan shillings on a monthly basis. She also sells milk from her farm to supplement her income.

Her main drawback has been lack of funding to purchase more bananas for her stalls on her plantations, and this has reduced her sales revenue. This loan will help her improve her yields in terms of banana sales and enable her to meet the customers’ high demands. She will be better able to meet the family requirements in terms of tuition fees for her children and a provide a more self-sustaining 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.
