Wofunira Development Association Group
In this Group: Robinah, Sarah, Ruth, Harriet, Margaret, Margaret, Miriam, Sarah, Josephine, Teddy, Sylivia, Agnes, Betty, Mastula
Robinah is the strong, dynamic chairperson for the Wofunira Development Association, a women’s lending group in the Zana Village. Zana is a village divided by a very busy road between Kampala and Entebbe. Most of the businesses are located on the main road and are better stocked and have more variety than businesses in villages off of paved roads. There is also more competition, and people pay higher rents for the exposure. Businesses can cater to people outside their communities.

Such is the case with Robinah. She and her husband have the Fairy Star Electrical Center. They are an electrical retailer and wholesaler. They provide electrical wire, switches, panel boxes for electricians, and light bulbs such as energy-saving fluorescents for homeowners.

Robinah is 38 and married with 4 children. She also takes care of 2 orphans. With her loan, she plans to buy more electrical supplies for her store.

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.
