Cesilia, age 31, is the singe parent of an 8 year old girl. She owns two businesses- a small street cafe and also a tailoring office. She starts cooking at 6:30am for her cafe, which serves lunch daily. In the afternoon, she works at her tailoring business and finishes work at 7:30pm. She started these businesses in 2005 and now makes a monthly profit of about $320 from her work.

In the past, Cesilia took a previous loan from Tujijenge Tanzania to buy more food stock and fabrics. She paid this loan back successfully and now hopes for a new loan to help her tailoring business. She will share this loan with her loan group, which totals 18 members. These members hold eachother accountable in paying back their loans.

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.
