Clothing sales has been Christine's business for the last decade. Ten years down the road in this kind of highly competitive business is not an easy accomplishment. The happily married mother of 6 says she has learned to take most challenges that come with her business philosophically. Hard work, determination and prayers have been her towers of strength. This business generates profits of 320,000 shillings per month. The purpose of this loan is to purchase more new clothes 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.
