In this Group: David, Zainabu, Kuhayiwa, Zuberi, Kasim, Abdalah, Christine, Salum, Hamiss, Zuberi
David, who is in his late 30s, is a married man with three children (a boy and two girls). His children are in school. David, a member of the Songa Mbele Group, has been managing a cafe and an Irish potatoes business. He is doing fine with his projects. He has been running his project since 2003, and he reports that it is profitable. He starts working at 10am and works to 12pm daily, and he has the ability of earning a good return every day.

This will be his fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which he repaid successfully, he managed to buy more café drinks, bought a fridge, repaired the business premises and started selling local chickens. With the profits received, he covered the home expenses and school fees and renovated his family’s house. He will use this loan to buy more bags of Irish potatoes to make chips to sell. David dreams of being able to expand his business extensively, one day.

He will share this loan with the other members of Songa Mbele Group, which consists of 10 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.
