Currently, Oddo has a challenge of shortage of farmland plus the diseases that attack his crops although he still wants to expand. He works hard to educate his children for a better future. Oddo needs a loan to help expand his business by buying farming equipment like hoes and 'panga's plus seeds and pesticides and others.

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.
