In this Group: Rehema, Mohamed, Hemed, Grace, Kelvin, Maxiwilliam, Selema, Kijoli, Shaibu, Hassan, Omary, Asha, Pesa, Job, Christian, Pili
Rehema, who is in her forties, runs two enterprises: a restaurant and a cosmetics business. She has been engaged in these endeavors for the past five years and both are thriving. She works from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and is able to make a good profit each month.

Rehema and her husband have two boys and two girls, all of whom are enrolled in school.

This will be Rehema's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan funds to increase stock items in both her businesses. This has allowed her business revenues to cover household expenses and pay school fees. She has paid back all her loans successfully.

She will use this loan to replenish items presently missing from both her businesses so as to meet customer demand.

Her dream is someday to be able to build a premises for her cosmetics business.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Actable the Best," which totals 16 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.
