Fred is a 29-year-old married man with three children living in Masindi, Uganda. He deals in produce, specifically maize, beans, and millet flour. He started the business with the proceeds from two acres of maize three years ago. His dream is to educate his children and build a permanent house. Price fluctuations and inadequate capital affect his business.

His business goals are to expand the business into new markets and buy land to grow crops.

Fred wants a loan to buy maize, beans, and millet flour to sell.

He is a member of the Bainomugisa Katumba group, where members guarantee each other in order to access a loan.

Important Information

This loan provides farmers and low-income entrepreneurs from underserved rural areas with access to financial services. By supporting this loan, you allow more farmers and rural entrepreneurs to access capital.

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.
