For the past four years Redemia has been selling fruit, other small food items and tea. She works from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. each day and is able to make a small monthly profit.
This will be Redemia’s fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She will share this loan with her loan group. The group is called “Ebeneza” and has 21 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.
Redemia used her previous loans to buy more small food items to sell along with her tea and has successfully paid back all of her loans. She hopes for a loan to sell more fruit. Her dream is to own her own restaurant where she can sell drinks, chips, meat and other food items.

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.
