This is his fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Marco used the previous loans which paid successfully to buy bricks making materials and bought iron-scraps which resold. Marco managed to earn an extra income which he used to cover school fees and home food expenses. He will use this loan to buy business stock of bricks making materials and iron-scraps. He dreams that one day he will be able to open his own company.

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.
