Sam N. of Kanyegaramire Tukwatanise, Kihihi, is a hardworking and ever-optimistic 29-year-old married father of one child. He operates a business growing and selling agricultural products, especially rice, in Kanyegaramire, Kihihi.

With a business longevity span of four years, Sam has managed to significantly sustain and improve on his family’s welfare. To all appearances, his future business prospects are promising, with 300,000 Ugandan shillings coming in monthly out of his business. He envisions an even greater profit margin as he gets this loan, anticipating being in a position to buy more rice for the business. This will enable him to expand the business by opening up more stores and also being able to earn more revenue and live a self-sustaining 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.
