In this Group: Nahida, Yusta
Nahida has owned a small shop and beauty salon in the Mikunguni neighborhood of Zanzibar for 15 years. She currently earns an average monthly profit approximately $175. Every day, she works at her business for eight hours.

She is requesting her second loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Tanzania so that she can buy more salon items and other items for her shop. She is hoping that through this loan, her profit will increase and she will be able to grow her business and save money for a future use.

Nahida is 41 years old, married, and has three children: ages 15, 13 and 10. She will be sharing this loan with her fellow group member, Yusta, who has her own small business in Zanzibar.

Additional Information

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.
