Mwanaidi, who is in her early thirties, is married with four children who go to school. Since 2000 she has been running a food vending business as well as selling khanga and vitenge (types of fabric) door to door. She works from 8:00 p.m. to midnight and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

Mwanaidi is requesting a 4,750,000 TZS loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, her eighth loan with the organization. She will share this loan with her loan group, Breakthrough, which has seventeen members who hold each other accountable for paying back their portions of the loan. Mwanaidi used her previous loan portions to increase her food stocks and to start selling khanga and vitenge. She has paid back all her loans successfully.

Mwanaidi wants to use her loan portion to buy more stocks of food so that she can sell to more people. Her dream is to one day be able to open and own a hotel.

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.
