Magreth S. is in her early twenties. She is a single mother of a four-month-old baby. Magreth has been running two businesses for the past four months. Her main business is a fruit and vegetable stall, but she also sells used clothing. Both businesses are open from 07:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. and earn Magreth a small monthly profit.

This will be Magreth's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She aims to use the loan to improve the condition of her vegetable stall and stock up on more second-hand clothes. Magreth's goal is to use her profit to improve the conditions of her new room, into which she has recently moved.

Magreth will share this loan with her loan group, Nguvu Moja, which totals 18 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying their loans.

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.
