Mwajuma, who is in her mid 30s, is married with five children who are still going to school. She has been running a genge-duka (retail and fruits and vegetables in the same shop) business for eight years now. She works from 6.00 am to 8.00pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her 4th loan fro Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase on the missing items in the genge-duka, started selling charcoal, paid household expenses and has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy more items for the genge-duka and more sacks of charcoal to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to own a Tigo Pesa (mobile phone and finance) business.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Mwaminifu" which has a total of 13 members who 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.

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.
