In this Group: Sharifu, Dallia, Rashidi, Mohamed, Ramia, Shabiru, Aziza
Sharifu, who is in her mid 30s, is divorced from her husband. She left with a family of seven children, four boys and three girls, one of whom is in school.

For six years now, she has been managing her family by running a fruits and vegetable business, commonly known as genge. Sharifu works from 7am to 8pm daily, and is able to make a small profit per month.

This is Sharifu's 20th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania; she will use it to replenish more genge items. She paid all the previous loans successfully, and she managed to buy more business items like fruit, vegetables, bundles of onions, potatoes, tomatoes, etc. With the business profit, she built a family house, and covered home expenses and school fees.

Sharifu is working hard to meet her family requirements. She dreams that one day she will be able to own a three-wheel motorbike.

Sharifu will share this loan with her group," Mkombozi Mwenge", which consists of 7 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.
