Maima, who is in her late 40s, is married and has two children who are still going to school. She has been running a business of selling shoes and bags for 5 years now. She works from 6am to 5pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Maima's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy the missing items from her shop and has paid back her loan successfully. She wants a loan to buy more shoes and bags to sell. Her dream is to one day travel to Thailand and select her own choice of bags and shoes.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Minazini", which has a total of 16 members holding each other accountable in paying back 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.

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.
