In this Group: Sophia, Yasin, Lidya, Ramadhani, Agness, Shabani, William, Sia, John, Alfredy, Mariam
Sophia, who is in her early 30s, is a widow woman with four children still attending school. She is able to run her family through having two retail activities. One is fish selling, which starts early at 3:00 a.m., by Sophia traveling a distance to collect fresh fish; thereafter taking them for frying. After having completed the fish activity, she comes back home for selling them up until 3:00 p.m.

She also has a clothes business and sells door to door after the fish business time. She generally does her activities from 3:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily, and is able to make a fair profit per month.

This will be Sophia’s fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, she managed to sell more fish and started her door-to-door clothes business. With the profit received, she bought a TV and solar power, and paid school fees and household expenses.

Sophia will use this loan to buy more fish to resell. Sophia dreams to one day be able to build a house for renting and to be in a good position for affording school expenses for her kids.

She will share this loan with her loan group" Mloganzila", which totals 11 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.
