In this Group: Jackson, Jackson, Dativa, Silvester, Frank, Yusuf, Deziderio
Johnson, a member of the group, sells local gin. He is a member of Buzooba group. He is married to Jenifer and they have three children, only one of whom attends school as the others dropped out.

He first took a loan of 500,000 UGX which helped him start the local gin business. It gradually moved to the level of self sustainability. However he faced a challenge paying back the previous loan when he was robbed of all the money and is now struggling to get back into the business of producing.

He wants the loan to buy more millet and maize, renovate his house and pay fees for the child. He is a hard working and persevering man.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of UGAFODE's program for clients who live in isolated rural areas with limited access to financial services. Uniquely, UGAFODE focuses its efforts on agricultural areas in Uganda that are over 50 km from their branches, providing loans to both groups and individual borrowers. The organization believes that the risk of offering services to remote clients is outweighed by the benefits to customers and their often underserved communities.

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.
