Anitha T., who is in her early thirties, is married with three children. She has been running a second-hand sales business for 9 years. She works from 7.00 am to 6.00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Anitha's 1st "motisha" loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A "motisha" loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. She hopes for a loan to expand her business stock. Her dream is to open a shop selling food.

Anitha will share this loan with her loan group "Mwamko", which has a total of 11 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.

In the picture, Anitha is first on the left.

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.
