Rose, who is in her late 30s, is married with four children, three of them go to school and the last one is still small. She has had a charcoal business for three years now. She works from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Rose's 7th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to start selling charcoal at wholesale price, selling wheat flour and rice at whole sale price, and pay household expenses. She has repaid back all her loans successfully. Rose wants a new loan to buy more sacks of charcoal to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

Rose will share this loan with her loan group " Kisiwani", which has a total of 15 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.

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.
