Asifa, who is in her early thirties, is married with two boys who are in school. For a period of four years now, Asifa has been managing her life by running a beauty salon and she says that it is a good business to be in. She works from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and she is able to earn a good monthly profit.

This will be her sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania Ltd. She used the previous loans to buy more salon equipment, a cupboard for clothes, a fridge and a plot of land, where, in the future, she wants to have a house. She also used the previous loans to pay school fees. Asifa has paid back all of her loans successfully. She is requesting a loan to buy salon equipment. Her dream is to one day be able to buy modern salon dryers and a deep freezer.

Asifa will share this loan with her loan group, "Uwazi Na Ukeli", which totals 11 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.
