Lulongo Sanyu Group
In this Group: Florence, Grace, Conelia, Bernard, Vang, Alice, Wilson, Eduard, George
27 year old Florence has been running a food sales business for 6 years now in Lulongo food market in Mubende. The happily married mother of 5 says selling many of the cash crops she grows and harvests from her farming gardens has significantly impacted on the welfare of her family. She says she has been able to earn disposable income, which enables her to make ends meet on a daily basis, and that her weekly business profits are about 100,000 shillings. With this loan she is going to purchase better fertilizers for her farming gardens. She reckons this will improve her crop yields, which in the long run will mean selling her crops at a higher market price.

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.
