Jibileth, who is in her early 40s, is married with three children who go to school. She has been running a food vendor business for five years now. She works from 6am to 11am (for five hours) daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her seventh loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to pay school fees, household expenses and also kept on increasing her food stock and has paid back her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to buy rice, maize, ground nuts and millet. What she does is mix and grind all of them together. She puts some aside for selling as dry food and with the other portion she makes porridge which she sells from door to door. Her dream is to one day build her own house.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Obama" which has a total of 16 members who will hold 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.
