Karid S. is a client of Pearl Microfinance and a proud member of the Lutengo Group in Lugazi. He is married with 4 children and has a motorcycle "boda boda" business that he has owned for 5 years.

He joined his lending group with a bid to develop his business and so far, he was able to buy a new "boda boda" to replace the old one that he had.

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.
