Goodliva B. is in her mid-thirties and is married with three children. Goodliva has been running a table top fish selling business for one and a half years. The shop is open between 7:30 am and 9:00 pm and earns Goodliva a low monthly profit.

This will be Goodliva's third loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Goodliva used her previous loans to increase her business and to make sure that she always has enough liquidity to restock if she needed to. These loans were all successfully repaid. Goodliva aims to use this next loan to improve the condition of the stall and to have enough liquidity to ensure a steady supply of fish.

Goodliva will share this loan with her loan group, Compressor, which totals 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Goodliva can be seen wearing red 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.

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.
