Hanzeran's Ari Mpya Group
In this Group: Hanzeran, Zainabu, Agness, Zainabu, Ayun, Tausi
Hanzeran, age 40, is a single parent of three children (ages 20, 17, and 12). She has a cosmetics business and she also sells clothing door-to-door to make a living. She travels to the island Zanzibar to purchase her goods. She started this work five years ago and now makes a monthly profit of about $90. She works from 2:00 in the afternoon to 8:00 each evening.

In the past, Hanzeran took out two loans from Tujijenge Tanzania to make trips to Zanzibar, pay school fees for her kids, and expand her line of products. She now hopes for a new loan to travel to Zanzibar once again to buy cosmetics and clothing. She will also use the loan to pay the examination fees for her child who is in Form 2 (second year of secondary school).

Hanzeran will share this loan with her subgroup who have businesses dealing in charcoal, clothing, food, and fabric sales.

In the picture, Hanzeran is in the back row, first on the left.

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.
