In this Group: Joseline, Asha, Marce, Rehema, Mariam, Walter, Musa
Joseline, who is in her early 60s, is married with six grown-up children. She has been running a fruit and vegetable business for three years now. She works from 6am to 6pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Joseline's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase the genge (fruit and vegetable) stock and has paid back her loan successfully. She used the profit to cover household expenses. She will use this loan to buy more items for her fruit and vegetable business. She dreams of owning a food retail shop.

Joseline will share this loan with her loan group "ORANGE" which has seven members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

About Tujijenge Tanzania

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. The organization aims to reach out to micro entrepreneurs and provide them with financial and social intermediation services because capital is one of the major barriers to development and success for micro-enterprise initiatives in Tanzania.

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.
