Kisra, who is in her early 40s, is married and has two sons who are in college. For four years now, Kisra has been managing her life by running a clothes shop. She is doing great in her enterprise. She works from 8 am to 6 pm daily and is able to make a good profit every month. This is her 11th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She will use it to stock more clothes to resell. With Kisra's previous loans, all of which repaid successfully, she managed to buy more stock, which sold out. With the profit received from her business, she managed to cover her boys' tuition fees, pay her home expenses and start building a family house. Kisra dreams that one day will be able to own a big clothing shop.

Kisra will share this loan with her loan group Mazingira-1a, which totals 8 clients. The clients 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.
