Imarika Group
In this Group: Athma, Juma, Kenethy, Iddi, Albert, Abdu, Athumani, Mayasa, Suleiman, Adam, Abdalah
ATHMA, who is in her early 20s, is married with two children who go to school. She has been running a genge-duka (selling fruits and vegetables in the same shop). She also sells sugar, salt, beans, wheat flour, baking flour and cooking oil.

This will be ATHMA's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to restock on the items missing at her business, and she is doing very fine. She has paid back her loan successfully. She used the profit to buy a bed and a mattress, and to pay school fees and household expenses.

She will use this loan to buy more fruit, vegetables, sugar, salt, beans, wheat flour, baking flour and cooking oil. Her dream is to one day be able to expand her business into a grocery.

ATHMA will share this loan with her loan group "IMARIKA" with eleven 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. 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.
