Genrose N. is in her late 40s and is widowed with three children. She has been running a charcoal business for the past five years. Her business is open between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. daily and earns Genrose a good monthly profit.

This will be Genrose's third loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to increase her stock of charcoal in order to meet the demand of her clients. Genrose aims to use her third loan to once again increase her stock of charcoal.

Genrose will share this loan with her loan group Haleluya, which totals 21 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

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.
