Tuleane Group
In this Group: Bertha, Rehema
Bertha, who is in her early 50s, is married with six children: four sons and two daughters who are in school. For eight years now, Bertha has been managing her family life by running a retail shop selling dry food like sugar, maize flour, and baking flour, and other daily demanded home items like airtime. She starts working from 08:00am to 09:00pm every working day and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Bertha used her previous loans to buy some daily demanded items like flour, sugar, water, airtime, packed juice, etc. She has managed to pay back all of her previous loans successfully. She used her business profit to start building a house and covered household expenses. Bertha hopes that her business will improve more and will enable her life to become better. She will use this loan to buy more stock for her shop, especially seasonal items like rice, to resell. She dreams of finishing building and providing a better education for her kids.

Bertha will share this loan with her loan group Tuleane, which consists of 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.
