Tusitukire Wamu Women's Group, Mpigi
In this Group: Margaret, Doreen, Proscovia, Pauline, Harriet, Fred, Betty
54-year-old Margaret K.'s affiliation is with Tusitukire Wamu Group, Mpigi. Margaret, who is a widow and a mother of eight, says she runs a rental and farming business. This diligent lady has been selling poultry for the last decade in Mpigi.

Margaret was previously a housewife. She was also doing some cattle keeping, though it was not her real business. She later came to the realization that to better her circumstances, she needed go hammer and tongs at the idea of setting up her own enterprise. It was about that time that she decided to get into that “walk the walk” stride as she took root.

With this loan she says she is going to procure more chicken mash for her poultry. This she envisions will insure the healthier growth of her chickens.

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.
