In this Group: Victoria, Hassan, Elizabeth, Nuru, Juma, Balozi, Mwanaisha, Safina, Dativa
Victoria, who is married with four children, is running a business selling different drinks such as beers, sodas, juices, and spirits for five years now. She is in her early 40s and doing great in her business. She works from 4 p.m. to midnight daily and is able to make a good profit per month.

This will be Victoria's fifth loan request, which she will use to replenish her stock of beer, wine, water and juice to resell. She used her previous loans to buy a motorcycle, a freezer, and more business chairs.

With the business profit earned, she bought house utensils and a fridge, renovated her house, bought new iron sheets, and paid for home expenses. Victoria's dream is to buy a car of her own.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Mabomba Mengi, which consist of nine 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.
