Mariam O., who is in her late thirties, is married with one child. She has been running a grocery business where she sells beer, soda and water. She starts working at 4.00pm until around midnight daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Mariam's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy empty crates and beer and has paid back her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to buy more beer. It seems she has more customers who buy beer than sodas and water. Her dream is to one day start a chicken business.

Mariam will share this loan with her loan group "Royal" which has a total of 16 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In the picture, Mariam is behind a man with a red t-shirt.

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.
