Fatuma, who is in her late 20s, is married with two children, both of whom attend school. She has been selling bricks for 6 years. She works from 3 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Fatuma's 7th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to open a shop containing cosmetics and undergarments in the Shinyanga District (almost 300 kilometers from Dar es salam). She also bought and sold bricks. Fatuma has repaid all her loans successfully and wishes for a new loan to buy and sell more bricks. Her dream is to one day own a nice house and a business car like a pickup.

Fatuma will share this loan with her loan group "Dockers", which consists of 15 members, who will hold each other accountable in repaying their loans.

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.
