Salome A. is in her mid-40s and is married with five children. Nine months ago she opened her own grocery store where she sells beer, soda and several other goods. The shop is open daily between 8am and 11pm and earns Salome a good monthly profit.

This will be Salome's first loan with Kiva partner, Tujijenge Tanzania. Salome aims to increase the variety of goods in her store, as well as stocking up on existing goods. Salome's dream is to earn enough profit to make improvements to her store one day.

Salome will share this loan with her loan group Mashineya Maji No 5, which totals 26 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

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.
