Tulia Group
In this Group: Chison, Shukrani
Chison is in his early 40s, married with one son who is still in school. He has been selling spare parts since 2007. He works from 8am to 6pm daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be Chison's 8th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to keep increasing his stock of spare parts. He is doing great, and he is very happy with a loan. He has managed to pay all of his loans successfully. He used the profit to pay school fees, cover household expenses and buy small items which were missing from his stock but were in demand. He will use this loan to buy the latest types of spares. He dreams of buying a lorry for carrying his spare parts.

Chison will share this loan with his loan group "Tulia" which has two 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.
