A boutique business is what 28-year-old Grace N. has been operating for the last six years in Bumama-Mpigi. She says it was her own enterprise and initiative that got her started. Most of the financial backing to begin this business came from her savings from her farming business. She still does farming but more priority is now given to her boutique business.

At her boutique, she sells a variety of different clothing for kids, ladies and men. Monthly, her profits total up to 200,000 shillings and this happily married mother of two says with this loan, she is going to purchase more clothes for reselling.

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.
