Grace is in her early 30s, and she is single, with one boy who goes to school.

She has been selling soft drinks for five years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her 13th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more stocks of soft drinks and vochas to resell. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to increase her stocks of soft drinks.

Her dream is one day to be able to buy a hiace (a business bus).

She will share this loan with her loan group "Azizi," which totals 16 members who will hold one another accountable for 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.

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.
