Busara 1A Group
In this Group: Hawa, Furaha, Sauda, Baraka
Hawa, who is in her early 20s, is married and has one child, who is in school. For two years now, Hawa had made her living by running a food stall business offering breakfast and lunch. This business requires tolerance due to its working environment and the nature of customers. Hawa is known for being a good service provider and working hard. She always wakes up at 5.00 a.m. to work at her food stall business and ends her day at 6:00 p.m. She is able to make a good profit.

Hawa joined with her group, Busara, to access loan supports from Tujijenge which opens a door toward fulfilling her dreams. Her group totals four members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan. She is now requesting a second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania to buy utensils, rice, sugar, liters of cooking oil and other business needs. With her first loan, she bought business stock and working equipment. She used her business profit to buy a motorbike, pay school fees and some household expenses. In the coming years, Hawa dreams to own a hotel.

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.
