Twitange Group
In this Group: Hadija, Mohamed, Zainabu, Mariam, Pilli
Hadija, an active member of Twitange group, is married and blessed with a baby girl. Hadija, who is in her mid 20s, is running a business selling mobile phones. She has been in this business for three years now. Hadija starts working from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

From Tujijenge Tanzania, this is Hadija's seventh loan request, which she will use to restock more mobile phones to resell. She used her previous loans to buy more mobile phones and increased on her amount to buy a HiAce (mini-bus) for business. Hadija has paid back all her previous loans successfully.

She dreams that one day she will be able to expand her business more and build a house.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Twitange, which consists of five 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.
