The parable about talents teaches that most people lack the confidence to do something because they are afraid of failure. There are many such people in Uganda but 32-year-old N. Safina is an exception as she has always had self-confidence and belief in herself. These attributes have worked for her in her two reliable means of subsistence: a hotel and a fresh food sales business in Bugembe-Jinja. She credits her husband for encouraging her, even while she was a housewife. In a month, her profits total up to 200,000 UGX and with this loan she is looking at purchasing more fresh foods for her hotel. She belongs to the Kawama Omunaku group-Jinja.

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.
