Mfanyeje works from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily and is able to make a very good return per month.

This will be Mfanyeje's twentieth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to serve her business by purchasing more fruits and vegetables.

She will share this loan with her loan group Darajani, which consists of 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
