Grace is a single mother who divorced her husband due to family wrangles. She was left with six children and also takes care of her parents who are now too old to do anything for themselves.

She runs a small retail shop with the meager working capital of UGX 300,000 where she earns income to look after the family. Besides that, she also has a piggery project where she earns additional income to support her family. She has applied for a loan of 600,000 UGX to buy building materials like timber and cement to construct an improved sty for her pigs. She will use the balance to add more stock to her retail shop. Her customers are neighbors and a few outsiders. Her major challenge is diseases. Grace is a very hardworking and honest woman.

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.
