Elizabeth, who is in her mid-thirties, is married with two sons who are still going to school. She has been running a food-vending business for three years now. She works from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Elizabeth's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to restock missing items in the food store, bought more sodas, juice and water, and bought a blender to make fresh juice. She has managed to pay back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and covered household expenses.

Elizabeth will use this loan to buy more chairs, increase the stock of baking flour, beans, cooking oil, and rice, and to buy more sodas and water. She dreams of owning a big hotel.

Elizabeth will share this loan with her loan group "Mistubish." The group of 14 members 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.
