Mary K., who is in her early thirties, is married with five children. She has had a chicken business for 12 years. She works from 5:00am to 8:00pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Mary's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to start the chicken business, sold fabrics and also bought a plot of land. She has paid back her loans successfully. She hopes for a new loan to buy chicken feed. Her dream is to have a big space where she can have a good number of chickens.

Mary will share this loan with her loan group "Tembo Mgwaza", which has a total of 15 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.
