PILLY, who is in her mid 40s, is married with two children, both of whom are still going to school. She has been selling clothes for five years now. She works from 8 AM-8 PM daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be PILLY's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy different types of clothes. She has paid back her loan successfully. She is doing great and appreciates the loan. She used the profit to pay school fees, cover household expenses and she is saving money in order to buy a tricycle (bajaji). She will use this money to buy clothes to resell. She dreams of opening another clothing shop in a different area.

Pilly will share this loan with her loan group "FURSA," 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.
