Betty N. is 32 years old, married, and has five children. She has run her pub in Likolo, Jinja for one year. She began with savings from her teaching job and food sales business. A variety of alcoholic beverages are offered for sale at her pub. Most of her clients are low and middle income earners around Likolo. Given the low remuneration that she receives as a teacher, this business with its 50,000 UGX weekly profits provides additional income to Betty to help her improve her circumstances and those of her family as well.. With proceeds from this loan, Betty says she is going to revamp her business with purchases of more crates of alcoholic beverages to sell at her pub. Betty belongs to Balinaki Development Group-Jinja.

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.
