Irene M., age 43, is single with three children aged 13, 15 and 20 years. She has a kiosk business where she has been selling water, soda and beer since 1992 and works daily from 10am until 10pm. She is able to earn a monthly profit of around $185.

This will be Irene’s 5th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase stock and to buy more umbrellas for shade and has paid back the loan successfully. She hopes for a loan to further increase her stock, but this time she asked for a smaller loan amount because she has moved to a new place with new customers.

Irene will share this loan with her loan group, Aziz, which totals 15 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable in paying back the loan. In the picture, Irene is seated and is wearing a pink blouse and a dark scarf.

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.

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.
