Mikoroshini 1B Group
In this Group: John, Asma, Neema, Mwanaisha, Mkami G, Anneth, Husna
John, who is in his early 30s, is single with one daughter who is in school. For two years now, John has been running a food business selling chips. He works from 8 am to 11 pm daily and is able to make a small return per month. John is working hard to see his family's life become better especially his daughter's.

This is John's fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. He will use the loan to buy new business chairs and repair his business place ('banda la chips'). With the previous loans, all of which were paid back successfully, he managed to buy more business food items- Irish potatoes,meat and eggs which were used to make more chips. With the profit received from the business, he covered school fees and family expenses. John dreams that one day he will be able to own a big shop selling food items.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Mikoroshini 1b" which consists of seven members. 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.
