Habiba S. is in her early forties and is married with two children. Habiba has been running a general store and a cosmetics shop since 2004. The grocery store is open daily between 6 am and 9 pm and earns Habiba a good monthly profit.

This will be Habiba's 10th loan with Tujijenge Tanzanania. The earlier loans were used for expanding the business as well as increasing her stock. All of these loans have since been repaid. With her 10th loan, Habiba once again aims to increase her stock of goods, both for the grocery store as well as the cosmetics shop. Habiba's dream is to one day own several grocery stores around the city.

Habiba will share this loan with her loan group Tujikwamue Kiburugwa, which totals 19 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Habiba can be seen in the back row, to the far left.

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.
