Subgroup A Of Group Sungura
In this Group: Moses, Moi, Ester, Agness, Ibrahimu
MOSES, age 49, is married and has 6 kids (ages 21, 19, 16, 12, 9, and 6). He owns a family-run coffee shop where he sells breakfast foods and snacks in the evening. He originally opened this business in 1974. The shop was temporarily closed for 18 years, however, while he served a local government position. It was re-opened in 2000. His business now makes a profit of around $5.50 a day, which he uses to pay house expenses and school fees. He attends to about 40 customers in the morning and 60 in the evening at his shop.

Moses is the leader of Subgroup A of Group Sungura (Swahili for “Rabbit”), which totals 31 members. He will be sharing this loan with subgroup members: Moi M. (tailoring business), Ester J. (sells soft drinks), Agness Z. (food business), and Ibrahimu M. (sells used clothing). Moses knows each of his subgroup members personally since they all live and work near each other. He and his subgroup have taken 3 previous loans from Tujijenge Tanzania to enhance their businesses and were able to pay them back successfully.

Moses used the previous loans on his business and also to purchase a plot of land. With the new loan, he hopes to open a tailoring business for his son.

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.
