Pilika Pilika Group
In this Group: Husein, Adelina, Suzana
Husein is a married father of three children, who are all in school. He is aged in his mid-thirties and is from Tujijenge, in Tanzania.

Since 1990, Husein has been running two businesses: a stall selling fruit and vegetables, and a retail shop. He opens his businesses from 7am to 7:30pm each working day, and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This is Husein's fourth loan request, and he will use this loan to buy bananas and buckets of cooking oil to resell. He used his previous loans (all of which he paid back successfully) to restock his stall with bananas for making food, fruits and vegetables. Husein also bought a fridge to keep soft drinks. He used his business profit to buy 200 bricks for house building, covered school fees and home food expenses. Husein dreams of expanding his business and improving his family life.

He will share this loan with his loan group "PILIKA PILIKA" which has three 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.
