Unity Group
In this Group: Aneth, Winfrida, Entuja, Asia, Jane, Mary, Maige, Dorina, Ibrahim, Jane, Salum, Moricia, Winfrida
Aneth, who is in her late 30s, is married with three daughters who are in school. For five years now, Aneth has been running a canteen selling different kinds of food: lunch food (rice with beans, meats, ugali), breakfast (tea with bites) and soft drinks. She is doing fine with her business. She works from 6 am to 5 pm daily, and is able to make a good profit in a month.

This will be her ninth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to restock more food items along with soft drinks, and has paid back all her loans successfully. With the profit received, she covered school fees and reinvested in the business. She will use this loan to buy a refrigerator for her business.

Aneth dreams that one day, she will be able to offer more food services to her food enterprise.

She will share this loan with her loan group," UNITY", which consists of 13 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.
