Anna, who is in her early 40s, is married with two children who are still in school. For the past three years, she has been a fish monger and she works from 4 in the morning through 10 at night to make a fair monthly profit. She is a member of the loan group “Forkland,” which is comprised of 16 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

Anna is requesting her fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania to increase her fish stock and finish up her small house. She used her previous loans to increase her fish stock and to start building a three-room house. Anna has successfully repaid her previous loans. Her dream is to one day own a good butcher shop and also to supply fish to hotels.

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.

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.
