In this Group: Kimwisho, Mathew, Hussein, Emanuel, Jackson, Patrick, Tumaini, Tano, Maisha, Abasi
Kimwisho, who is in her mid-20s, is a single mother of two children, both of whom are in school. For two years now Kimwisho has been running a cafe where she sells items including sodas, juice, milk, biscuits, cakes, mandazi and water. Working from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily, she is able to make a small monthly profit.


This will be Kimwisho's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, her previous ones having been used to start selling cakes, biscuits, mandazi, etc. and to restock drinks. She has since repaid the loans and used her profits to buy a wadrobe, radio, TV set and food and to pay for household expenses. She will use this loan to buy more stocks of sodas, juice, milk, biscuits, cakes, mandazi and water. She dreams of becoming a famous business woman.


Kimwisho will share this loan with her 10-member group "Reebok," 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.
