Eva N. belongs to Bwavumpologoma Women’s group-Lugazi. Eva has been a hard worker with entrepreneur skills ever since she began her food sell business 4 years ago in Kiyoola-Lugazi. She began this business under the auspices of her close friend who often told her she was destined for success. In retrospect she says she was living by her wits being a housewife. Circumstances have taken a favorable turn for this widowed mother of 5 as she is now able to live within the ways and means provided by her business.

She has been selling mostly staple foods for families in Uganda like bananas, sweet potatoes and fish. 180,000 shillings a month is what her business generates for her. With this loan, Eva is upbeat she will be able to purchase more bags of these foods that she will resell and at length, make more profits.

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.
