R. Elvanis is the leader of the Rwempiri subgroup in Ibanda. She is a happy and friendly lady with a business of selling milk from her farm animals in Rwemipiyafu village. She has a herd of cattle that give her over 60 liters of milk every day. Once she sells, she is able to settle her family needs including her children’s school fees and general upkeep. She is also a farmer with banana plantations from where she gets matooke (plantain) for sale.

Elvanis is seeking her 9th loan and, this time, she would like to employ labor that can help cultivate a fresh piece of land for increased farming as well as buying two more cows for farm expansion.

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.
