Mtetwa's Group
In this Group: Mtetwa, Mate, Asha, Augustino, Rehema, Abdallah, Gaby , Stamili
Mtetwa, 26, is married with one son of 2 years old. She owns a video library in Mwananyamala. She started this business three years ago and works daily from 8am until 10pm. She is able to earn a monthly profit of about US$ 217.

This will be Mtetwa’s third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the first two to increase the inventory of her library, and she wants to open a beauty salon so she has started to buy things for the salon and has paid the loans back successfully. She now hopes for a new loan to improve the salon.

Mtetwa will share this loan with subgroup B of the Serena group. The subgroup has 8 members who run shops, a salon, and sell cosmetics, food, and shoes. These members hold each other accountable in paying back their loans. In the picture, Mtetwa is second from right 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.
