Halima is in her late 30s and is a widow with three children. She has been a food vendor for three years now. She works from 8am to 10pm and is able to make a good monthly profit.
This will be Halima’s second loan from Kiva partner, Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loan to increase her food stock and has paid back the loan successfully. She is now requesting a loan to purchase more stocks of food. Halima’s dream is to build her own house one day.
Halima will share this loan with her loan group, "Madona", which totals 18 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.

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.
