Aziza, who is in her early 30s, is married and living together with her husband and has two children who are in school. For three years now, Aziza has earned a living by running a genge business selling fruits, vegetables and charcoal. She works in her business from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, and she is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase more on the business inventory and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She is requesting a loan to increase on the genge stock to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to expand her business widely in Tanzania.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Karafuu," which totals 11 members who 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.
