In this Group: Mwanahamis, Lucy, Scola, Aloyce, Azinati, Willman, Fatina, Eliza, Fredrick, Seif, Ismail
Mwanahamis, who is in her late 30s, is married with three daughters who are in school. For eight years now, Mwanahamis has been involved with three businesses: a clothes business, selling tap water and motorbike transportation. She is doing fine with all activities and has even been able to employ a few helpers. Mwanahamis works from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm each working day and is able to receive a fair profit each month.

This will be her 13th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she managed to pay back successfully, she bought two motorbikes for transportation and replenished her clothes business with new fashions. Mwanahamis used her business profit to buy a plot of land where she built a family house. She covered school fees for her daughters and part of her household expenses. Mwanahamis will use this loan to buy another water storage tank to supply more water. She dreams of starting a new poultry business.

She will share this loan with her loan group KILIMANJARO, which includes 11 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.
