Arabia, who is in her late 40s, is married with two children who are in school. Since 1998 Arabia has been managing her life through having a business of selling food. She is hardworking and well known, with many customers. She works from 7pm to 11pm daily and is able to earn a good profit per month.

This will be her 12th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous eleven loans to buy a plot of land, more business equipment (like chairs, plates, forks, spoons, tables, etc.) and more stocks of food, as well as to cover household expenses and school fees for her children. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She has requested a loan to open another food selling business (a restaurant). Her dream is to one day be able to expand her business even more.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Mango", which totals 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

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.
