40 year old Emmanuel is now 20 years in his farming business in Lugazi. The happily married father of 8 says its been a worthwhile business venture due to the high demand for food in many parts of Lugazi which is usually dry and where many indigenous people are not known for farming. He grows and sells foods such as bananas, cassava, groundnuts, sorghum, beans and maize. He also runs a retail shop as a supplementary business.

He says his business generates him profits of shillings 500,000 per week. With this loan, Emmanuel says he is going to purchase better and higher grade manure for his farms.

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.
