In this Group: Kabeni, Nicholaus, Rehema, Halima, Maya, Musa, Asha, Mariam, Emanuel, Tabia, Marce
Kabeni, who is in his early 50s, is married and has five children: two boys and three girls. All of them are still attending school. For the past year, he has been earning a living by operating a Genge (fruits and vegetables) business. He works from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be his twelfth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his previous loans to increase his inventory and to start selling dry food in the same place. He sells items such as sugar, salt, beans, backing flour, wheat flour, cooking oil, etc. Now his business is called Genge Duka (fruits, vegetables, and the dry food in the same shop). He has managed to pay back all of his loans successfully. He will use this loan to increase his inventory of vegetables and fruits. His dream is to one day be able to own a big retail shop.

Kabeni will share this loan with his loan group "Orange," which has 11 members who 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.
