Mango Group
In this Group: Doric, Naima, Petronia, Rose, Ahmad, Bakari, Arabia, Steven, Somoe, Rose
Doric, who is in her early forties, is married with three children who are still going to school. She has been running a grocery store since 2011. She works from 12:00 noon to 11:00 pm daily, and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Doric's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase the grocery stock by buying more beer, soda, water and spirits, and has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and cover household expenses. She will use this loan to restock the out-of-stock items in the grocery store. Her dream is to one day be able to own a poultry business.

Doric will share this loan with her loan group "Mango", with ten 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.
