Angela M. is in her early sixties and is married with seven children. For the past ten years, Angela has been running a general store from which she sells basic goods. The business is open between 05:00 am and 08:00 pm daily and earns Angela a low monthly profit.

This will be Angela's third loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Angela used her previous loans to increase her stock of flour and other basic goods. These loans have since been successfully repaid. With her third loan, Angela aims to once again increase her stock, as well as pay school fees for her children. Angela's dream is to one day expand her business to a large store.

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

In the picture, Angela can be seen as the first on the right.

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.

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.
