Serengeti Group
In this Group: Easther, Henrishi
Easther, who is in her early 30s, is married and has one school child.

For five years now, she has been managing her life by running a beauty salon. Easther believes that Tujijenge, Kiva's partner, will be of great help to her as she will be able to offer better products and improve her customer service. She runs her business from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

From Tujijenge Tanzania, this is her fifth loan request. She will use the loan to buy salon working equipment. Her previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, were used to buy business requirements like cosmetics, dyes, etc. Easther used her business profit to cover school fees and household expenses. She hopes to open a big salon.

Easther will share this loan with her loan group,”Serengeti,” which consists of two members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

This loan is administered by Tujijenge Tanzania, which was founded in 2006. It has operations in Dar es Salaam, the coastal region, and the Lake Victoria region.

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.
