More information about this loan
This loan is designed to help smallholder farmers or local communities generate short-term crop revenue while waiting for their tree plantations to reach maturity. If the loan is for a smallholder farmer, it is an individual loan. If the loan is to a community, it benefits a geographic area of 250 to 1,000 people. This loan will be repaid using revenue from the sale of plantains. Profits will be shared equally between planting empowerment and borrower or borrower community.
Because Planting Empowerment is a relatively young organization that completed its first plantain harvest in August 2013, this loan may carry a higher level of risk than typical Kiva loans. Expected repayments to Kiva lenders are based on projected harvest revenues.
Important InformationThis Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
