In this Group: Christina, Amina, Virginia, Paulina, Jane, Restuta, Beda
Christina is aged in her early 30's and is married with one chlld who is still small. She is doing great with her shop selling kids' clothes. This business enables Christina to manage her family welfare. She has been in this enterprise for one year and is able to make a good profit per month.

This is her fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Christina used the previous loans, all of which she repaid successfully, to replenish her shop with new fashionable clothes and with soft drinks and bites which sold out. She earned extra income which she used to cover part of her home food expenses. Christina will use this loan to buy new kids' clothes for her shop. She dreams that one day she will be able to expand her business with other big branches.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Survey," which totals 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.
