Hard-working and die-hard agriculturalist Edith K., age 49 years, has been maintaining a banana plantation and coffee plantation for more than ten years in Burema, Kihihi. This fetches her about $89 per month, though not enough to sustain her family of six children who are pursuing their education at higher institutions of learning.

She has persevered at keeping her enterprise growing. Her aim for taking up this loan is to enable her to buy mulches and fertilizers for her plantations and also to hire additional laborers. She is looking at an expansion plan and wanting to transport her products to bigger markets. This will help Edith increase productivity and also earn more revenue, allowing her to be able to live a more sustainable life.

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.
