In this Group: Evoda, Nurudini, Zainabu, Grace, Pascal, Nicolaus, Asia, Yese, Omary, Ismail
Evodia, who is in her late 30s, is single with two boys who are in school. She is earning a living by running a fruit and vegetable business (genge-duka), operating since 2002. She works from 7am to 6pm daily and she is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase business stock, pay school fees and household expenses, and buy a TV for her home. She has paid back all her loans successfully.

She wants a loan to buy more sacks of onions to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to finish building her house and to sell fruits and vegetables at wholesale prices.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Tugeme" which totals 10 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. 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.
