Katenga Turibamwe Group
In this Group: Miriel, Joy, Middy, Christine, Elly, Ziporah
Joy is a member of Katenga Turibamwe group, which is in Katenga sub-county - Mitooma district. She has borrowed two times from UGAFODE Micro-finance and hopes to get another loan of 500,000 (Five hundred thousand shillings) to boost her goats trading business which she has done since 1999.

Joy also sells bananas, which gives her additional income to cater for the needs of her family. She does the business in a rural area in Kakyera1 - Bitooma, and her clients are consumers and fellow traders.

She has high hopes that her business will expand and she will be able to make more profits.

Joy describes herself as an honest and trusted business partner but says her business still faces a challenge of inadequate capital, though she hopes that this will be no more if the loan is given and she buys the goats when the prices are still low.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of UGAFODE's program for clients who live in isolated rural areas with limited access to financial services. Uniquely, UGAFODE focuses its efforts on agricultural areas in Uganda that are over 50 km from their branches, providing loans to both groups and individual borrowers. The organization believes that the risk of offering services to remote clients is outweighed by the benefits to customers and their often underserved communities.

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.
