Lawama A. is in her late 30s, married, and has four children. She has been running a small food vendor business for the past four years. Lawema works daily between 7 pm and midnight and earns a low monthly profit.

This will be Lawama's fifth loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to help increase her stock of goods, buying rice, wheat, and other stock at wholesale prices. She has successfully paid back her loans. With this loan, Lawama again aims to increase her stock in charcoal, rice, beans, and cooking oil.

Lawama will share the loan with her loan group Reebok, which totals 20 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Lawama is seen as the first on the right in the front row.

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.
