Anna, who in her late 40s, is married with three children who are still in school. She has been selling bites and soft drinks for seven years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Anna's 12th loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to start selling bites and to increase her soft drink stock. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She is doing great and appreciates Kiva for its support to her group.

Anna has used her profits to start building her house, pay school fees and cover household expenses. She will use this loan to buy sugar, flour, eggs and oil for making bites and also to purchase soft drinks to sell. She dreams of finishing the house she has started.

Anna will share this loan with her loan group, Temboni, which has five members who 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. The organization aims to reach out to micro entrepreneurs and provide them with financial and social intermediation services because capital is one of the major barriers to development and success for micro-enterprise initiatives in Tanzania.

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.
