Doris, who is in her early 20s, is married and has two children (a boy and a girl); one child goes to school and the other is still a baby. Doris has been running two businesses selling fabrics (vitenge) and also running mamalishe (a restaurant) for three years. She works from 6AM TO 4PM daily and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

She requests a third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more fabric, increased the food items in her restaurant and covered household expenses, and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She requests a new loan to buy more restaurant items to make more food to resell to more customers. Her dream is to one day be able to build a nice house for her family.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Wastara", which totals 18 members. The members of the group will hold each other 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. 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.
