34 year old K. Mujibu is a charcoal salesman in Kisenyi, Kampala. The happily married father of 4 has been operating this business for the last 10 years, before which he was mostly doing odd jobs in and around Kampala. He says his weekly business profits are about 150,000 shillings, and adds that with this loan, he will purchase more bags of charcoal to resell. Mujibu also has a rental business that he oversees. Through the course of the years he says he has relied on one thing, which is hard work. This hard work ethic has sustained him this long, and he anticipates that if he keeps going with that tenacity, his further longevity will be guaranteed.

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.
