In this Group: Rose, Mosi, Mariam
Rose, who is in her early 30s, is married with two children who are still in school. She has been selling secondhand clothes for two years now. She works from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Rose's 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her stocks of secondhand clothes. She has paid back all of her loans successfully. She used the profits to buy a fridge, start building her house, pay school fees, and help her husband with household expenses. She will use this loan to buy additional stocks of the secondhand clothes. She dreams of finishing her house to build a shop for her business.

Rose will share this loan with her loan group, Dolphin, which includes three members who 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.
