Devota, who is in her early 40s, is married with two children who go to school. She has been a food vendor for five years. She works from 8.00 am to 11.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Devota's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania Ltd. She used the previous loan to increase the grocery inventory and cover household expenses and school fees. She successfully paid back her loan. Now, she hopes for a loan to restock the grocery items. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

Devota will share this loan with her ten-member loan group, Apple Group. The group 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.
