Salasala Group
In this Group: Maua, Kasian, Juma, Sarah, Felix
Maua, who is in her late 30s, is married with two boys--one is in school and another is still young. For six years now, Maua has been running two different projects: raising poultry and selling clothes and women's bags up-country. She is doing fine with her businesses. She works from 5 am to 8 pm every working day and is able to earn a small monthly return.
This will be her 8th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, Maua opened her new clothes and bags business, paid for chicken feed and kept on repairing her chickens' place. She used her profit to pay school fees and part of the house's food expenses. Maua will use this loan to add more chicks to her poultry business and increase the store of feed for her chickens. She dreams that one day she will be able to buy a plot of land where she can conduct her poultry-raising and other farming business.
Maua will share this loan with her loan group “Salasala" which has 5 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.
