Mwandege Mbagara Group
In this Group: Fatuma, Ally, Omari, Afswa, Sophia, Asha, Omari, Faudhia, Fatuma, Sofia
Fatuma, who is her early 40s, is single with her own five children. Three are in school, while the other two are finished with school and independent.

For seven years now, Fatuma has been managing her family by running genge (grocery) business selling fruit, vegetables, onions, tomatoes, and other food related items. She works from 7 am to 9 pm daily, and is able to make a fair profit each month.

This will be her fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which paid back successfully, she bought more genge/grocery items which she sold. Fatuma's business profit was used to cover her children's school expenses and household expenses.

She will use this loan to open another fruit and vegetable business in a different area. She dreams that one day she will be able to build a house and expand her genge/grocery business.

She will share this loan with her loan group " MWANDEGE MBAGARA", which totals 10 members. The members of 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.
