In this Group: Eriya, Peterson , Enid, Kedresi, Scola, Kamara, Erivania, Sarafina , Samuel, Stephen, Regina , Justus, Justine, Wilber
Eriya is a 40-year-old married man with five children who lives in Kyenjojo, Uganda. For the past five years, he has been a farmer who mainly grows Irish potatoes. Eriya used to farm on hired land but after two good harvests he was able to buy his own land. Unpredictable weather changes and price fluctuations affect his farming activities.

Eriya is requesting a loan to buy Irish potatoes to plant. He is a member of the loan group "Rwenyonyozi Bakyaara Tweimuke" and each group member will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan. In the future, Eriya's dream is to venture into mechanized agriculture.

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.
