Diligence has put Polly on the inside lane for continued success in her plastics-sales enterprise, which she has been running for a decade now in Ntungamo. Forty-eight-year-old Polly had to begin with a clean slate after she dispensed with her former business of agro produce sales. This high-spirited mother of four says her relentless and determined way of conducting her business has seen her make significant headway. Polly also ekes out side profits from a rental business. She says this business generates her 200,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) weekly as profit, and she says with this loan she is going to purchase more plastics to resell.

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.
