Upendo F., who is in her early thirties, is married with two children. For the past year, her business has been selling second-hand shoes from door to door. She works from 11:00am to 4:00pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Upendo's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She hopes for a loan to increase her capital. Her dream is to open a shop and start selling shoes in one place.

Upendo will share this loan with her loan group Upendo Mloganzila. The group has a total of 19 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

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.
