Fadina is in her late 30s, married and has four children, three of them go to school. For the last seven years, she has earned a living by selling food, working from 3 p.m. to midnight every day of the week. She is applying for her second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her first loan to buy more of the supplies she needs to run her business and pay school fees, and repaid her loan fully and on time. She plans to use her second loan to buy more food items to sell. Her dream is to one day open a new business selling clothes. She will share this loan with her loan group "Wazi na Ukweri," which has a total of 24 members who will hold each other accountable for 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.
