Halima, who is in her mid-30s, is married, with one son who goes to school. She has been selling different items in her place, things like ice cream, ice cubes, sodas, juice and cooked food. She has been in this business for six years now. She works from 9:00 a.m. to midnight daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Halima's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy a big fridge for storing more items like juice, sodas, water, etc. She also bought the missing items in the stock inventory. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay for school fees and covered household expenses.

She will use this loan to buy and open a shop frame for selling items like juice, sodas, ice cream, ice cubes and cooked food. She dreams of buying land and building a house of her own.

Halima will share this loan with her loan group, "Tanzania", which has a total of seven members who 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.
