He prepares and bakes sugar, butter and wheat breads. He supplies the breads by himself in the market center to his customers and people also take bulk delivery of bread from him. He has been in business for a year.

His only problem now has to do with adequate funds to buy raw materials as we approach Christmas festivities. He requests a loan to remain in business and also to take care of his family. He believes it is not possible to realize his dream of expansion by himself. He would be grateful for assistance. Apart from the above business, he is also doing carpentry work and manufactures furniture like beds, tables, chairs, etc.

He is the leader of a trust bank group called "Dwen Daakye," which means "think of the future." He is the one sitting in front in the group photograph. Most of the members of this group are petty traders, food vendors and/or farmers. In this group, members guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan and peer pressure to repay the loan.

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.
