Anna who is in her late 30s, is married with three daughters who go to school. She has been running a business of selling food for two years. She works from 6.00 am to 6.00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Anna's 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase the food stock, pay school fees, buy a DVD player, a plot of land for agriculture (maize, sunflower), for household expenses and has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy farming equipment and a fridge for the cafe drinks. Her dream is to be able to build her own house some day.

Anna will share this loan with her loan group "Jasiri" which has 14 members, who 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. 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.
