Salma K. is in her late thirties and is married. She has 4 children. Salma has been selling food from her food stall since 2000. The stall is open between 6 am and 10 pm and earns Salma a good monthly profit.

This will be Salma's second loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Salma used her first loan to increase her stock of chapati and doughnuts. This loan has been successfully repaid. Salma will use her second loan to increase her stock in other products for her food stall, which she is currently missing. Salma's dream is to one day earn enough profit to build herself a new house.

Salma will share this loan with her loan group Babati, which totals 22 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Salma is wearing yellow and orange, standing in the middle in the back 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.
