Momela (Two) Group
In this Group: Muhsin, Vidas, Sara, Yasin, Amos, Jeska, Irene
Muhsin, who is in his early 30s, is married with one child who is going to school. He has been running two different businesses: managing a bajaji (three-wheel motorcycle) for three years and managing a retail shop selling food items since 1999. Muhsin works from 6am to 10pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This is his 4th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to pay for spare parts and the maintenance of his bajaji and replace out of stock shop foods. He has paid back all his previous loans successfully. With the business profit earned he bought a TV, sofa set, fridge, digital decoder and covered household and school expenses.

Muhsin will use this loan to buy more stock for the retail shop. He dreams to open another shop. He will share this loan with his loan group "Momela (Two)" 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.
