Magreth C., age 36, is single with three children who are 16, 14 and 12 years old. She has operated a retail shop for one and a half years now. She works from 6 am to 8:30 pm daily and she is able to make a monthly profit of about $186.

This will be Magreth’s second motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A motisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. She used the previous motisha loan to increase her business stock and she has paid back the loan successfully. She hopes for a new motisha loan to continue to increase her stock. Her dream is to buy a fridge and start selling juice, water and soda.

Magreth will share this loan with her loan group. Chai Bora has nine members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.

In the picture, Magreth is first one on the left, standing in the second row.

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.
