M. Robinah belongs to the Matale Women’s group in Lugazi. This mother of eight has for the last 20 years operated a business with the help of her husband and her sister. She sells food items (mostly tomatoes), shoes, and clothes. She began this business with a PEARL micro-loan. Before she started her endeavor, she was a farmer. She now earns 70,000 shillings a week in profits. With this loan, Robinah says she wants to expand her business. This will be in the form of further purchases of more tomatoes as well as cassava and fresh beans, new pairs of shoes, and clothing items to offer for sale.

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.
