Rozi S. is in her late twenties and is married. She has had a food sales business for one year. She works from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Rozi's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her stock and to pay school fees for her brother's sister. Rozi has successfully repaid her loans. She hopes for a new loan to buy a sack of rice, half a bucket of cooking oil and a sack of wheat flour. Her dream is to one day open a moderate restaurant.

Rozi will share this loan with her loan group "Wazo Tegeta" which has a total of 17 members, who will hold each other accountable in repaying their loans. In the picture, Rozi is in the middle of the front row wearing a green and white blouse.

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.
