Manyara Grp Group
In this Group: Caren, Mary, Regina
Caren, who is a vice-chair of Manyara group, is in her late 50s and has six grown children. She is married. Caren is supporting her family's welfare by managing a general store selling a variety of items (rice, baking flour, maize flour, sugar, cooking oil, airtime, soaps, etc). She has been in this enterprise for three years now and is able to make a small profit each month.

This is her second loan request through Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan, which she has paid back successfully, to restock her shop with more inventories. Caren earned a profit, which she used to pay for her welfare. She dreams of building a house for orphan kids. As a mother, Caren is so in-touch to help street children who don't have a chance to win their dreams. Caren will use her credit request to replenish her shop with popular products.

She will share this loan with her loan group "MANYARA GRP", which has three 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.
