Janeth D., aged 35, is married with two sons, 14 and 10. She has been selling vitenge (fabrics) for 5 years. She works from 9 am to 1 pm and she is able to make a monthly profit of about $33. This will be Janeth’s fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy ulezi (brown wheat) to make porridge and started selling vitenge. She sells from door to door and is really doing fine and has managed to pay back the loans successfully. She hopes for a new loan to buy vitenge and bed sheets. Janeth’s dream is to buy a car and transport her products to more customers

Janeth will share this loan with her loan group, Makongo KK, which totals 16 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan. In the picture Janeth is wearing a kitenge in the front row.

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.
