Koku D., age 27, is single. She has had a pharmacy business since 2007. She works from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and is able to earn a monthly profit of about $45.

This will be Koku’s 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy more medicines for the pharmacy and has paid back the loan successfully. She hopes for a new loan to improve on her stock and to pay for the shop rent.

Koku will share this loan with her loan group Mt Magorot, which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.

In the picture, Koku is in the middle of the front row.

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.
