More information about this loan

This loan is part of Amasezerano Community Banking's Ezukame ("agriculture") program, designed to provide capital to poor farmers in rural Rwanda. ACB invests a higher percentage of its portfolio in agriculture than any other Kiva Field Partner, and is strongly committed to serving the needs of rural borrowers. This type of loan has terms ranging from one to 36 months, with the option to repay in full at the end of the term or in monthly installments.

This flexibility is critical in Rwanda where 85% of the population is employed in agriculture, but many formal financial institutions consider the sector to be too risky to invest. By funding this loan, you are expanding opportunity to farmers with limited options.

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.
