In this Group: Magreth, Niku, Edda, Hawa, Modesta, Husna, Asha, Clement, Denis, Shedrack, Maka, Leonard, Maria, Laurence
Magreth, who is in her early 40s, is married and has three children, who are in school. Since 2007, Magreth has been earning a living by running two businesses, a restaurant and a business selling genge (fruits and vegetables). She works from 6am to 3pm daily, and she is able to make a fair monthly profit.

She has requested a second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy restaurant food items (such as wheat flour, cooking oil, and 25kg of rice) and to pay school fees, and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to increase her stock of genge. Her dream, one day, is to be able to provide a better education for her children.

She will share this loan with her loan group, " Imani," which totals 14 members. The members of the group 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.
