Pilika Pilika Group
In this Group: Catherine, Saidi, Rozina, Amina
Catherine is in her 40s, single, and has two children. She operates a shop selling clothes, which she has been doing for five years. She earns a good monthly profit. Catherine's shop is open from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM daily.

Catherine is requesting her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she will use to buy new clothing to sell. She used her previous loans, which have been repaid, to replenish her shop with up-to-date clothes. She earned a profit, which she used to pay part of her household expenses. Since she is single, most of her extra income pays for her family welfare. She hopes that one day she will be able to enroll her children in an international school.

Catherine will share this loan with her group, Pilika Pilika , which consists of four members. The members of the group hold each other accountable for repaying 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.
