Georgina is a businesswoman in her early thirties. She is married and has two daughters who are at school. For the past three years, Georgina has been supporting her family with two businesses: a beauty salon and a charcoal store. She wakes up early in the morning to perform her house activities prior to business. She works for her business from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This is Georgina's first loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, to be apportioned among TUINUANE's seven group members. Georgina and her group members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan. Georgina will invest her portion of the loan in her businesses: to buy salon hair products and sacks of charcoal to resell. Her ambition is to be a successful woman.

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.
