Subgroup C Of Group Tegemeo
In this Group: Asili, Zainabu, Ally, Colleta, Zainabu
ASILI, age 46, is married with 5 children (ages 15, 11, 8, 5 and 3). He used to work with Total Petrol Station but had to leave because the station went bankrupt. As a result, he started his own business in 2003, a hardware store called the “Mkopi Store.” The shop is open daily from 7am to 6pm. He hires 2 shopkeepers and pays a shop rent of about $45 per month. He makes a profit of around $273 per month which he uses for home expenses and school fees for his children. He also takes care of his mother who is living with them.

Asili is the leader of Subgroup C of Group Tegemeo (Swahili for “expectation”), which totals 21 members. He is going to share this loan with his subgroup members: Zainabu R. (selling charcoal & fire wood), A. M. (selling charcoal), Colleta M. (shop owner), and Zainabu A. (selling snacks). This subgroup has already shared 2 previous loans which they were able to pay back successfully.

Asili used the previous loans to buy hardware appliances for his shop. With the new loan, he hopes to once again increase his stock.

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.
