Husna S. is in her mid 20s and has a five-year-old daughter. Husna has been running a tabletop fruits and vegetables business since 2008. The shop is open between 5:00 am and 5:00 pm daily and earns Husna a low monthly profit.

This will be Husna's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Husna used her first loan to increase her business and to start supplying other people with fruits and vegetables. Husna has since successfully repaid that loan. With her second loan, Husna aims to open a salon in Tabata. Her dream is to open a clothing shop.

Husna will share this loan with her loan group Mwale, which has 16 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

In the picture, Husna can be seen wearing a yellow shirt in the first row.

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.
