Hadija H. is in her late thirties and is married with three children. Hadija has been running her own beauty salon for the past 6 years. The shop is open daily between 8 am and 9 pm and earns Hadija a good monthly profit.

This will be Hadija's 8th loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to increase her stock of beauty products for the salon. She also used the previous loans to start another business selling womens suits. With this loan, Hadija hopes to buy more suits, as well as find a store from which she can sell them. Hadija's dream is to one day be able to go to China and buy good quality suits.

Hadija will share this loan with her loan group Kisiwani, which totals 18 members. The members of the group will hold each other responsible for repaying the loans.

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.
