Kilombero Group
In this Group: Asha, Kiria Brown
Asha, who is in her early 40s, is married with three children who are in school. Since 2010, Asha has been managing her family by running a business selling lake fishes (fresh fish supplier). She works from 10am to 6pm and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This is Asha's 3rd loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to buy more fish, which is supplied to more customers. Her profit was used to cover household expenses and pay for her children's school fees. She has paid all of her previous loans successfully. Asha will use this loan to buy more lake fish to sell to more people. She has planned to own a food selling shop in the future.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Kilombero" which totals two 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.
