Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan helps support farmers in rural communities in Rwanda. The loan, which is available to both individuals and groups, is repaid in full at the end of the loan term, allowing borrowers to repay only after crops are harvested or livestock are sold. About 85% of Rwandans are employed in agriculture, but many formal financial institutions consider the sector to be too risky. VFC is one of very few financial institutions serving farmers and offering agricultural products that work with local harvest cycles. VFC also offers training on increasing crop yield and helps farming cooperatives access better agricultural inputs. By supporting this loan, you are helping rural Rwandan farmers improve their crop yield and ability to support their families.

About Vision Finance Company s.a – Rwanda (VFC)

Vision Finance Company, soon to be known as Vision Fund Rwanda (VFR), is the microfinance subsidiary of World Vision and is one of the largest microfinance institutions serving rural underprivileged communities in Rwanda, many of which do not have access to formal financial services.

VFC serves people and communities that are economically productive but low-income, especially in very rural areas. This includes small business owners and salary earners who are looking for opportunities to provide better lives for their families and a promising future for their children.

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.
