Christina is a married woman in her early 60s with four children (three of them in school). She has been managing her family by running a food shop selling different food items. She has been in this business since 2011. She is doing fine in her project and family as well. She works from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and is able to make a good profit each month.

This will be Christina's 16th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she repaid successfully, she managed to increase the foods she sells to meet her customers' demands and bought a wheelbarrow for luggage carrying. With the profit earned, she bought a plot of land, where she expects to build a house, and paid school fees and home expenses. She will use this loan to replenish the food inventory in her retail shop. She dreams of building a nice house.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Kichangani," which totals 20 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying 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.
