She says laying to heart the different experiences that have come with running this business has been momentous. In a nutshell, she says reflecting on her chequered experiences has helped her plan for her business in a more systematic and organized manner.

Gorreti who is single but has one child says she took root in this business with savings from her tailoring business. Monthly she says this business generates profits equivalent to shillings 200,000. With this Kiva loan, she feels she will be empowered to purchase more ripe bananas, jack fruit, pineapples, etc. 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.
