His endeavor is located by the roadside where he is able to attract a good number of customers, particularly those from the local community.

Francis is also involved in tea harvesting as his other business, and this supplements his monthly income. Francis says that previous loans have enabled him to have enough stock for his customers as well as to ensure that he saves on the transport costs of buying in small quantities.

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.
