Getruda J. is married, in her mid twenties, and has a 5 year old son. For the past year Getruda has been buying clothes and then walking door to door to sell them. She does this between 10 am and 5 pm and it earns her a low monthly profit.

This will be Getruda's first loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Getruda aims to use this loan to pay initial rent on a property which she aims to use to open up a clothing shop. Getruda is really looking forward to having her own shop and not having to go door to door anymore. Getruda's dream is to be able to take her son to a good school.

Getruda will share this loan with her loan group Loyola, which totals 17 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the photo, Getruda can be seen second from right in a black blouse.

About Tujijenge Tanzania

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. The organization aims to reach out to micro entrepreneurs and provide them with financial and social intermediation services because capital is one of the major barriers to development and success for micro-enterprise initiatives in Tanzania.

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.
