Mbogo Group
In this Group: Fatuma, Mboni, Angela
Fatuma is in her early thirties and is married. She has three children who are in school. For two years now, Fatuma has been making her living by running a shop selling dry food items like sugar, rice, baking flour, maize flour and beans. She opens her shop from 7am to 8pm daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be her first loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, and she will use this loan to restock food items like the above. Fatuma dreams that one day she will be able to send her kids to international school. She will share this loan with her loan group "MBOGO" which totals three members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

About Tujijenge Tanzania

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.
