Ruth, 36, is a farmer by profession. The married mother of five mostly grows and sells bananas, tea leaves and sorghum. She has been in this business for the last six years. Where she does her farming in Kihihi, there is always a ready market for the crops she grows. This in a way explains the reason why she decided to start this business. She says this business generates monthly revenue of 180,000 shillings. With this Kiva loan, Ruth plans on purchasing better manure for her farm.

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.
