Mwahija Yosuph is in her mid-forties, and is married with four children. She is engaged in the sale — wholesale and retail — of cement, water, juice, and corn husks which are used as chicken feed. Mwahija has been selling these products for the past seven years, and works daily between 7:30 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. The business earns Mwahija a good monthly profit.

This will be Mwahija's fourth Motisha loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Motisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. Her previous loans were used to increase her business — loans which she has successfully repaid. Mwahija aims to use this loan to buy more cement and water.

Mwahija will share this loan with her loan group Subira, which has thirteen members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

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.
