Rose, who is in her early 40s, is married and has four children who attend school. She also takes care of her father. Rose has been operating two businesses: chicken layers and a dairy cow. She works from 7 a.m to 6 p.m. daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be Rose's 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to start building her house and to buy chicks for her poultry business. Rose has repaid all her loans successfully. She now wants a loan to buy more chicks and to buy cow feed. Her dream is to one day be able to start selling broilers.

Rose will share this loan with her group "Tembo Ngwaza" which consists of 16 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their 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.
