Mt Ulunguru Group
In this Group: Rose, Fina, Nyasa, Napenda, Sarah, Frank, Sophia
Rose, who is in her early forties, is married with three children who are still in school. She has been running a poultry business for one year now. She works from 8 am to 8 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Rose's 14th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans for buying and selling chicken layers (which are for meat only not for laying eggs). She also sold cosmetics and bought chicken feed for her poultry business and has paid back all her loans successfully. She appreciates everyone who has supported their group. Rose used the profit to pay school fees, bought a plot of land, and covered household expenses. She dreams of building her own house.

Rose will share this loan with her loan group Mt Ulunguru which has seven 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.
