Maclaren Group
In this Group: Rehema, Devis, Magdalena, Beatrice, Calister
Rehema's age is in her early thirties, and she is single. She has two boys and one girl who are in school. For twelve years now, Rehema has been managing a genge (grocery stall), selling fruits, vegetables, and charcoal. She starts working from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. per working day, and is able to make a fair monthly return.

This is Rehema's 13th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans, all of which were paid back successfully, to restock more fruits, vegetables items, and sacks of charcoal.

Her business has improved, and it made her monthly return raise. Rehema is thankful to everyone who has supported her family and business. She used the business profit to buy a plot of land, and covered school fees and family food expenses.

Rehema will use this loan to buy sacks of charcoal for her store. She dreams of building a family house to stay away from renting stress.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Maclaren, which totals five members. The members of the group 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.
