Isael has had a business of selling rice, wheat flour, salt, beans, and maize flour for three years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.
This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy some kilos of beans and sugar, to pay school fees and household expenses, and to pay rent for her shop. She has repaid all her loans successfully.
She hopes for a loan to increase her stocks of sugar, salt, wheat flour, and some kilos of beans for her business. Her dream is one day to be able to build her own house.
She will share this loan with her loan group, “Prado,” which has 16 members who will hold one another accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
