Devetha is in her late 20s and married with two children, one of whom is going to school. For the past two years, she has been running a food-vending business. Devetha is doing great with her business. She works from six thirty in the morning through seven thirty at night and is able to make a small profit. Devetha is requesting her second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loan to buy more cooking items. Devetha has repaid her loan successfully and she used her profit to cover home expenses and school fees.

Devetha is the leader of a group loan. Her loan group, “Mtamakulanga,” consists of 14 members who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan. Devetha will use her portion of the loan to restock missing items in her store. In the future, she dreams of building a business premise instead of renting.

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.
