John is pictured wearing a yellow t-shirt with black stripes. He grows and sells passionfruit to earn a living. He works 7 days a week for 10 hours each day. He is also involved in farming for another source of income, and he has been in this business for three years. John began his business to acquire some income to support his family.

With his portion of the loan, John would like to buy more passionfruit. He will buy mulch for the passionfruit and also restock some of the passionfruit plants to increase his sales. It is the hot season so the mulch will help to maintain the moisture in the soil. He hopes that the loan will help him to take his business to another level.

John's main challenges are diseases and poor transport. He is hard working, resilient, honest and dependable.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of UGAFODE's green loan program, giving Ugandan farmers the support they need to grow and process organic fruits and vegetables. Funds will be used to obtain critical resources like processing equipment, mulch and organic seedlings to reduce waste water contamination and improve consumer health. The green loan program also helps clients combat regional problems like deforestation and over-fishing.

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.
