Mt Uluguru Group
In this Group: Lilian, Saven, Sabnus, Rose, Mgeni, Frank, Ibrahim, Zainabu, Theresia, Ashura, Aisha, Sophia, Ester
Lilian, who is in her late 30s, is married and has three children who go to school. She also looks after one relative (an orphan). She has been running a genge business (fruits and vegetable) since 2004. She works from 4 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, and she is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her 11th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to build a display frame for her business, to buy a TV and DVD deck and to pay for household expenses and school fees; she has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to increase the stock of fruits and vegetables to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own family house.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Mt Uluguru, which totals 13 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
