For ten years now, Fredy has been running a business selling fruit and vegetables, commonly known as genge. He is doing great with his activities. He works from 8 am to 9 pm daily, and is able to make a fair return in a month.
This will be his tenth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans all paid back successfully, he managed to restock more fruit and vegetables. With the genge profit received, he paid school fees, covered home costs, and other basic needs expenses.
Fredy will use this loan to replenish more genge items - fruit, vegetables, onions, tomatoes, etc. He dreams that one day, he will be able to have a good performing fruit and vegetable business, which will enable him to more easily meet his family's basic needs.
He will share this loan with his loan group, "Zebra", which totals ten 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.
