Vicent is a 40-year-old married man with six children living in Kyenjojo, Uganda. He is a member of this group, where each member guarantees the others in accessing a loan.

For ten years Vicent has been farming and with the proceeds he has been able to pay school fees for his children. He started as a subsistence farmer but now farms commercially. He has challenges of inadequate capital to buy farm inputs, as well as price fluctuations and inflation. Vicent wants a loan to buy seedlings for planting.

Vicent's personal goals are educating his children and building a permanent home while his business goal is hiring employees to expand his business.

Additional Information

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.
