Andrew has taken out five loans with Tujijenge before, and he has succesfully repaid all of them. With this loan, he hopes to upgrade his camera and equipment, which will allow him to take more pictures of better quality. Furthermore, he is also using the loan to put together a collection of his work that he will sell when it is finished.
Along with Andrew, there are five other members in his group who will share the loan. These members own businesses ranging from tailoring to food vending. The group takes the loan out together and guarantees each member in the group to ensure full payback.

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.
