Fortunatas, who is in her early 40s, is single with three children who go to school. For six years she has been running two businesses: poultry (meat and eggs) and vegetables. She is doing well. She works from 6 am to 12 am daily and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

She is requesting her eighth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to start running a new business of chicken eggs and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for the new loan to buy more stock of chicken feed. Her dream is to one day be able to expand her business widely.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Mbogo", which consists of 14 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
