M. Amos belongs to the Bukere Twimuke group from Mubende. He is 25 years old and married with 2 children. He has a boutique that sells clothes from Kiyaka, which he has run for four years. His customers are mostly retail buyers from his community, and he is able to make enough sales per week (i.e., 100,000 per week in local currency).

Amos needs a loan to buy new clothes to stock his boutique for the Christmas season. Amos was inspired to start his business due to demand in his community, and he does not regret the advice he received from his friends about starting the business. His dream is to build a store to increase his income.

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.
