Subgroup H Of Tujikwamue Ukonga
In this Group: Dominic, Amani, Aminatha, Maria, Sara, Patricia, Stephano
Dominic L., age 40, is married and has 4 children (12, 8, 6 and 4 years old). He owns a beef butchery which he opened in 1993. He pays around US$55 for rent per month and hires 2 men to help him sell the meat. Dominic buys the meat at around US$2 per kilo and sells it for US$3. He serves about 40 customers per day during the week and 50 customers over the weekend, making a profit of about US$14 a day. He has been using the profit to cover family expenses and to increase the stock of meat in his store.

Dominic is the leader of Subgroup H of group Tujikwamue Ukonga (Tujikwamue meaning “progressing from one stage to another” in Swahili, and Ukonga being the location), which totals 55 members. He will be sharing this loan with his subgroup members: Amani M. (tailoring), Aminatha T. (chicken & clothing sales), Maria D. (clothing sales), Sara M. (clothing sales), Patricia P. (medicine and other sales), and Stephano M. (butchery). He knows his subgroup members well, as they are all neighbors and, as a group, have already successfully paid back their first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania.

With the previous loan, Dominic purchased a larger stock of meat for his butchery. He is planning to use the new loan to buy more stock and to also renovate his butchery.

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.
