Juba Group
In this Group: Tida, Idd, Halima, Samuel
Tida, who is in her early 30s, is married with three children who are in school. Since 2007, Tida has been managing her family responsibilities by running a retail shop, selling items like flour, sugar, match boxes, soaps of different types, cooking oil, airtime and other consumable and durable items. She is doing her shop activities normally from 7:30 to 8:00 pm daily, and is able to make a good return per month.

From Tujijenge Tanzania, this will be her first loan request. Tida will use this loan to restock more items in her shop. She dreams that one day she will be able to open a wholesale shop.

Tida will share this loan with her loan group, Juba, which has four members who 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.
