Modesta, who is in her late 30s, is married and has two children who are in school. She has been managing a hardware business for six years. She opens her shop at 7 a.m. and works until 10 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

From Tujijenge Tanzania, this is Modesta's tenth loan request. She paid back all of her previous loans successfully and used them to buy hardware stock and open a branch. She used the business profits to buy a plot of land and pay her children's school fees and household expenses.

Modesta will use this new loan to buy hardware stock. She dreams of opening another big hardware store. Modesta will share this loan with her group "Mt. Livingstone," which totals 13 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

This loan is administered by Tujijenge Tanzania, which was founded in 2006. It has operations in Dar es Salaam, the coastal region, and the Lake Victoria region.

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.
