Rehema Hassan, age 47, is married with four children ages 22, 20, 18 and 15. She also takes care of her mother. She has a fish business which she started four years ago and works daily from 6am until 2pm. She is able to earn a monthly profit of around $375.

This will be Rehema’s fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase the stock of fish and she repaid the loans successfully. She now hopes for the fourth loan to buy more stock of fish as she is now having more orders and she is going to pay her child’s school fees as well.

Rehema will share this loan with her loan group, Ari Mpya, which totals 17 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable in paying back their loans. In the picture, Rehema is to the left of the person in red in the front row.

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.
