Somoe, who is in her mid-30s, is single with 2 children. She is also taking care of her sister's daughter who has just finished her primary seven. Samoe has been selling cooked food, fruits, and vegetables for 3 years now. She works from 7:00 am to 11:00 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit. Her dream is to one day build a house of her own.

This will be Samoe's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her food stock, and purchase more fruits and vegetables and has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to increase "genge" (Kiswahili fruits and vegetables).

She will share this loan with her loan group "Mango" which has a total of 17 members, who 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.
