Furaha Tegeta Group
In this Group: Leonard, Amina, Pili, Hassan
Leonard, who is in her early 40s, is married and has three children who are still going to school. She has been running several businesses selling cooked food and cold drinks like sodas, beer, juices, water, wine and spirits for four years now. She works from 8 am to midnight daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Leonard's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to restock the missing items in her cold drinks store and in food store. She has paid back her loan successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and covered household expenses.

Leonard will use this loan to buy more sodas, juices, beer, wines, spirits, rice, maize flour, meat, chicken and more Irish potatoes for making chips. She dreams of building a guest house.

Leonard will share this loan with her loan group "Furaha Tegeta", which has four 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.
