Albert S. is a rice cultivator in Ruhuha sector, a member of Abakundisuka group, and has been a customer of Kiva's partner, ACB, since 2009. He's 31 years old, married, and has three children, aged 2 to 8. One of them attends school.

Albert was born in Bugesera, in Rwanda, and attended elementary school. He is seeking his third loan from ACB, and his repayment history is very good. He will use his loan to buy fertilizers, and to pay for labor.

His strategy for growing the group's business is its members' unity, living in the same agglomeration, fighting poverty by working restlessly, and valorizing rice cultivation in his region.

He would like to own machines to help him with his activity, and at least one cow for each member of the group. For his family and himself, he would like to have a cow to provide milk to the family members, send his children to school, and feed his family in a decent manner.

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.
