K. Kate, 47 years old, has belonged to the Rwahi Women's group for the past 26 years, relying on her agro produce sales business as a source of livelihood. Year in, year out, she has brought hard work, conviction and determination to bear. She sells her foods at a food stall in the Rwahi trading center, which she claims is the reason she has stayed in business this long. She has mostly been selling beans, peas, sorghum and maize, which are staple foods in Uganda. She continues to farm. In a week, her profits total up to 100,000 UGX. With this loan, she plans to buy onions to plant and resell upon harvesting.

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.
