Thirty-year-old G. Peter is a timber salesman operating from Jinja. The happy-go-lucky father of two has been in this business for eight years now. He says he was able to get established in this trade with profits from his first business, commercial farming--not that he has deserted it. He still finds time to go and tend to the crops in his gardens. Both of these businesses have required him to work hard. And in that regard he has not shortchanged himself. Peter is affiliated with Namizzi central group, and he says this business can generate him weekly profits to the tune of 250,000 shillings. He says with this loan he is going to purchase more timber to resell.

In the group photo, three group members are not seen clearly, so I marked them as unpictured.

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.
