Mt Ulunguru Group
In this Group: Mgeni, Lilian, Napenda, Sarah, Frank, Sabina, Rose, Sophia
Mgeni, who is in her early 50s, is married with two children who are grown up. She has a grandkid staying with her and still at school. She has been running a retail food shop for five years now. Mgeni's business is located near a school and she uses that opportunity to sell sweets and some small bites that students mostly like. She works from 6.30 am to 10.00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her 10th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she managed to pay back successfully, she bought more dry food items missing from her food shop. She also managed to buy a few sweets and bites, which she normally sells to students. Mgeni used her profit to build a house, buy a car, home sofa set, TV, fridge and a nice dining table. She paid school fees for her grandkid. She will use this loan to buy more rice, cooking oil, juice, and other items that are in high demand for resale. Mgeni dreams of improving her business so that she can earn a high profit to develop her idle farm and start farming.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Mt Ulunguru, which consists of eight 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.
