K. Dodovico is a 60-year-old hardworking man, married with 18 children between the ages of 8 and 35, and he takes care of two dependants. He has been involved in the supply of charcoal to schools and to retailers for 21 years. They take in small quantities and, as a result, he makes 60,000/= weekly profits. He is an honest man who delivers on time, and this has won him customers and contracts. He has a dream of increasing his supplies and lobbying for more school and hospital contracts so that he can make more profit from his business.

Dodovico is the leader of his group in Mukono. Dodovico needs a loan to be able to buy more charcoal from the villages for his customers.

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.
