On the face of it, K. George William seems a hard-grinding businessman. The 37-year-old married father of five school-going children sweats his guts out selling agricultural produce in a small rural town called Rutabo in Kyenjojo district. He has been doing this for the last two years.

In a month, George makes close to 30,000 shillings. This is quite modest by any standards and, as such, he requires a loan that will help him buy more food supplies for his business.

George belongs to a group and they are on their 2nd loan. They insure each other in paying back the loan.

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.
