45-year-old Aisha has been plying her clothing sales business in Kampala for close to five years. The happily married mother of three bubbling kids says she began this business with persuasion from her sister. She had no previous business experience but she was undeterred in her desire to take root. The pep talk from her friends contributed a lot, too. This determined tenacity, coupled with her personal abilities, are calling cards which will count a lot as she continues on her business Journey.

She says this business generates approximately $42 a month in profits. Aisha says that with this loan she is going to purchase more bales of clothes to resell. Two female clients by the names of Sarah and Rehema had their faces partly obscured when the group photo was taken. I have marked them as not pictured. Aisha, the group leader, is the lady with the white blouse seated in the front row.

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.
