Prisca K., who is in her early 40s, is married with three children. She has a business of selling liquid soap and toilet disinfectant. She has been in this business for two years and works from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (just for six hours). She is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Prisca's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She wants a loan to buy ingredients for her business. She sells her products on order -- her customers ring and make orders and they either collect them or she delivers to them herself. Her dream is to one day have a factory where she can be able to make a big amount of stock and make it easy for customers to come in and out instead of her going door-to-door.

Prisca will share this loan with her loan group, Kwembe, which has a total of 24 new members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in 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.
