Kilombero Group
In this Group: Joyce, Fatina, Rehema
Joyce, who is in her late thirties, is single with two children who are still at school. She has operated a cosmetics business for three years now. She works from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Joyce's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy cosmetics which were in demand and pay off her loan. She used her profits to pay school fees, buy a plot of land and cover household expenses. She is doing fine and really appreciates that loan.

Joyce is applying for a 5,600,000 TZS loan to share with the two other members who comprise her group named Kilombero. The three members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan. Joyce will use her portion of the loan to buy different types of cosmetics to meet her customer's demands. She dreams of building her own house on the plot of land she bought.

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.
