Frifence W., is in her mid-twenties and is single. She has been selling ladies clothes door to door for two years. She works from 9.00am to 4.00pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Frifence's 3rd motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A 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. She used the previous loans to go to Kariakoo shopping centre and buy more ladies clothes, handbags, and ladies shoes. She has paid back her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to buy more clothes, handbags and shoes. Her dream is to one day own a salon and put all the required equipments for that in her salon.

Frifence will share this loan with her loan group "Chicago" which has a total of 8 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their 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.
