More information about this loan

This loan is part of a special WAGES program for groups of Togolese farmers and livestock breeders, offering financing at a lower interest rate in addition to relevant training. The reduced interest rate is designed to hit a sweet spot, empowering clients in rural Togo to capture significant, impactful profits and become more financially stable after three credit cycles. WAGES is working with the Togolese government, Veterinarians Without Borders and the African Institute for Economic and Social Development to make this program possible. By supporting this loan, you're extending opportunity in a country where 70% of the population works in agriculture but financing options remain scarce.

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.
