* not pictured
Rose M., 37, is a married mother of five children, aged six to 20. She is also the foster mother of her late brother’s three orphans. She rents a small stall in Kampala’s vibrant Owino market where she sells second-hand clothes and provides tailoring services. She became a seamstress five years ago after earning a certificate in tailoring. She specializes in gomeses (traditional dresses) and school uniforms.

This is Rose’s first loan with BRAC. She will use the loan proceeds to purchase wholesale quantities of clothing items for her boutique and to purchase more tailoring materials and supplies. She hopes that this loan will help her attract more customers with a higher selection of products and increase her profits.

Rose has big ambitions! She hopes to one day import clothing from Dubai and New York and offer them in her own exclusive boutique. She would love to be able to educate her children in the finest universities abroad.

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.
