* not pictured
Gertrida is married with six children who are all going to school. She operates a retail shop and a bar. On top of this, Gertrida is also practising farming on a small scale so that she can supplement her income. It's from these businesses that she has been able to educate her children and look after the family. She previously borrowed 300,000 shillings from UGAFODE three months ago which helped to increase capital in the business.

Gertrida now wants a loan of 600,000 shillings for her retail business. Her dream is to see her children go to school and also to support her husband in putting up a permanent house for the family. Her challenge is limited capital in the business plus high transport costs. She is optimistic that with UGAFODE through the group, her life and her family status will gradually change.

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.
