Makongo Kk Group
In this Group: Justina, Hamisa, Angelina, Paulo, Adam, Hadija, Fransisca, Happy, Leocadia, Jumanne, Tusigwege, Deo
Justina, who is in her early 30's, is married and has three children who go to school. She has been running her business selling charcoal and vitumbua (puff rice cake) for six years now. She works from 4 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, and she is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy more rice for making more vitumbua (puff rice cake) and to cover household expenses, and she has paid back her loan successfully. She hopes for a loan to buy more sacks of charcoal and rice. Her dream is to one day be able to build a house.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Makongo KK," which has 12 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
