Forty-year-old Juliet M. makes common cause with Kiwanga Women's Group-Mukono. She has been selling timber for ten years under the supportive auspices of her husband, who she says was the one person who inspired to start her business. Formerly, she was a teacher.

In the future, she is considering expanding her business even further. Juliet is happily married with 5 children and this business generates 200,000 shillings per week. With this loan, she plans to expand her business and buy more timber to resell, not only in Mukono, but also in Kampala.

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.
