Jamila is married with three children (two boys and a girl) who are in school. She is in her mid 30s. For ten years now, Jamila has been running a food business. She is working hard and it shows. She works from 7am to 6pm daily and is able to earn a good profit per month.

This will be her 17th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy a plot of land, where she finished building her family house, bought more business inventory, and paid school fees and household expenses, and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to increase more on food stock items. Her dream is to one day be open another food business center.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Faraja Mavurunza", which has a total of 14 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.
