In this Group: Protas, Fatihia, Salum, Stanley, Tina, Mohamedi, Mwinchumu, Hamis, Nassoro, Anna, Wiltos, Solomoni, Kadiri, Mwajuma
Protas, who is in his early 30s, is married and has two children, who are in school. For five years Protas has been running a butcher shop, selling beef. He starts working at 6:00 AM and closes at 6:00 PM daily, and he is able to make a fair return per month.

This will be Protas's 12th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He will use it to buy more meats to sell at his shop. He used his previous loans, both to buy more meat and to equip himself to begin slaughtering animals at his own place. He has managed to repay all of his previous loans, successfully. He is doing great in his butcher shop.

With the business profit he expects to earn, Protas will cover school fees, home expenses, and start building a house. Protas dreams that one day, he will be able to buy more cows from different up-countries. He will share this loan with his loan group, Wang'ae, which is comprised of 14 members. The members will hold each other accountable for paying back the group's 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.
