This is Grace's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan, which she paid back successfully, to restock her business with more chickens from the village. Grace managed to earn extra income, which she used to buy DVD music player, plow back into her business, and cover part of her home food expenses. Grace is happier with your loan support. She will use this loan to buy local chickens from the village to resell in town. In the coming years, Grace would like to sell more local chickens than she currently does.
Grace will share this loan with her loan group "Huruma," which has two members but three people in the photo. 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.
