Retailing has been 30-year-old N. Lukia's business occupation for the last 10 years in Gambwa-Mityana. At her premise, she predominately sells rice, beans, maize flour, etc. Before the inception of this business, she had a penchant for farming. She has not dispensed with her farming enterprise notwithstanding. She still finds time to go and tend to her crops and gardens, though much time is spent at her retail shop. This hardworking mother of 4 says weekly her profits are 100,000 shillings. With this loan she is looking at buying more retail items such as sugar, bread, maize flour, etc. for reselling. Lukia belongs to Akwata Empola Gambwa Group-Mityana.

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.
