Laurencia M. is 43 years old and makes a living selling food from a stand in a business center in the Mityana district of her town. Mostly she sells bananas, cassavas and sweet potatoes. She went into this line of business 12 years ago after being persuaded by a friend to open her stand. Before that, she was a full-time mother who was raising nine cheerful children. She used to work occasionally as a farmer but is doing better in her new field because of her diligence and careful planning. She earns about 20,000 shillings a week as profit and will use her portion of this group loan to buy more food to sell, including beans, rice, maize flour and peas.

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.
