Kibosho Group
In this Group: Asha, Halima
Asha is in her early thirties and has two kids, a small one and one other schooling child. She is married and owns a water tank where she fills it with water and resells to her neighbors. She also sells charcoal. She has been with all the businesses for three years now. Asha works from 6 am to 10 pm per working day and is able to make a good profit each month.

This will be her third loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With her previous loans, since she repaid them, she bought a water storage tank and sacks of charcoal. She manages to receive extra income which she uses to cover part of the school fees and home food expenses. She dreams to be a successfully mother managing a big business. Asha will use her new loan request to expand her charcoal store and purchase more sacks to resell.

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