Anjelina P., who is in her late thirties, is married with 5 sons and one daughter. She has operated several different businesses for the past 10 years. Angelina operates a retail shop where she sells food items, including Irish potatoes. She also has a food vending business. And if these two businesses did not keep her busy enough, she also sells fabric door-to-door. She is really a hard working lady. She works from 6am to 8pm and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Anjelina’s 11th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to open her retail shop and food vending business. She has paid back her loans successfully. She will use this loan to increase the shop inventory and to buy more Irish potatoes.

Anjelina will share this loan with her loan group, Mikumi, which totals 16 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In the picture, Anjelina is in orange.

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.
