Nine years of unwavering resolve and efficacy have brought dividends to 37-year-old Benon's produce sales business in Ibanda. The sturdy father of five speaks glowingly of how he has been able to bring a new lease of life to his family. Benon is invariably firm in purpose. Notwithstanding the hardships he has faced, he has not wavered.

Benon plies his trade in one of the biggest food markets in Ibanda. What has helped his cause is the fact that he is a farmer. On his farms, he grows and harvests crops such as maize, rice, bananas and yams. At length, these are the crops he sells. Weekly his business's gross sales income is to the tune of Uganda shillings 80,000.

He says he intends to use this Kiva loan to purchase more maize and bean seeds to grow.

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.
