This will be Alexander's 10th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to stock fast moving items, and has paid back all his loans successfully. He is a hard working fellow and it shows. He is grateful to all who have supported his group, Prado, with a loan. With his profit, he bought a plot of land, built his house, bought a TV set, a radio, a sofa set, a mattress, a bed and covered house hold expenses. He will use this loan to buy sugar, beans, salt, maize flour, backing flour, and cigarettes, which are the fast moving items. He dreams of buying a motorcycle.

Alexander will share this loan with his loan group, Prado, which has a total of three 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.
