Robinah is 42 years old, married, and has five children. She has been a farmer for 10 years and runs her business efficiently. She also sells food on a daily basis in the Kyenjojo food market in the West of Uganda. The costs of running her business over the years have not been as high as she in most cases sells what she harvests from her farms.

Along the way, Robinahhas encountered hardships, but it has been her precept to make the best out of bad bargains. Robinah's monthly sales returns will only get better once she receives the loan she is requesting, which she will use to purchase better manure for her farms. Not only is she hoping for better yields but Robinah hopes to expand her business beyond the borders of Kyenjojo.

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.
