This will be Mariam's 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to restock the missing items in the grocery store, bought more fish and bought baking flour and cooking oil. She is really doing great and appreciates the loan. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay for school fees and household expenses. She will use this loan to increase the stock in her grocery and to buy more fish to resell and chapati. She dreams of building her own house.

Mariam will share this loan with her loan group "ORANGE" which has five 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.
