In this Group: Christina, Fortunata, Maria, Frida , Tausi, Prisca, Zainabu, Zainabu, Habiba, Shela
Christina, who is in her early 30s, is married and living together with her husband with two girls, of whom one goes to school and another is still a baby. She has been running a fruits and vegetables business (genge) and also has owned a vegetable garden for three years now. It enables her to make a good monthly profit.

She requested the second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to purchase a garden pump machine and seeds, and to cover household expenses. She has paid back her loan successfully.

She hopes for a loan to open a new business of secondhand clothes to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to buy a farm for agriculture.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Arsenal", which totals ten members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
