Rutwe Women's Group-Kihihi
In this Group: Aisha, Florence, Petra, Catherine, Justus
K. Aisha, aged 40, runs a used clothing sales business in Kihihi Town. The divorced mother of one has been operating this business for the past five years. She says she started this business with capital from an agro-produce sales business. When I ask her about what she thinks has made her achieve this longevity in a business as fickle as this, she says it all boils down to diligence, prayers, good human relationship skills and a sense of determination.

Aisha says this business generates 100,000 shillings weekly as accrued profits. She is already casting her mind to the future with a view of expanding her business into a bigger and more profitable enterprise. She says she is requesting this loan to purchase more bales of clothes to resell. She is affiliated to Rutwe Women's Group-Kihihi.

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.
