K. David is the leader of the Gamba group in Lugazi. He is a fisherman on the Senyi landing site in Bbogo. He is happy that ever since he joined his lending group, life has changed. He is able to run his business, he has a farm where he grows food both for sale and for home consumption, and he is able to have his boats serviced when the need arises.

He has two boats now and would like to buy a new engine for his second boat for efficiency. He is now happy that his children go to school and he is able to clear their school fees on time. He has a plan of growing the number of boats into a fleet so that he can rent out the rest for increased profits.

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.
