M. Betty is the leader of Tufube group in Jinja. She is a married lady with 5 children as she cares for many relatives. Betty is a poultry farmer rearing layer chickens whose eggs she sells to customers and shop owners in Wanyange and Jinja town. She has included the keeping of broilers just for the Easter season and she hopes to reap big profits from their sales. In addition to poultry, she is also a farmer growing food mainly for home consumption and this helps her not to spend so much on food for her family. Betty needs a loan to help with buying feed for her chickens, since this period is so important for their feeding.

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.
