Rehema, who is in her early 30s, is a single woman with two children who are in school. For a period of five years now, Rehema has been running a mamalishe (restaurant) offering different food services. She is doing fine in her project and family also. She depends on this field to meet her daily needs. Rehema works from 8 am to 7 pm daily and is able to make a small profit each month.

This will be Rehema's ninth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Having successfully repaid her previous loans, she managed to increase her stock of food. With the returns, she covered school fees for her children as well as household expenses. Rehema will use this loan to purchase the foods she needs in her mamalishe (restaurant). She dreams of the possibility of one day owning a nice hotel.

Rehema will share this loan with her loan group, Coka-Kiwalani, which has 13 members. The members of the group will hold each other 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.
