In this Group: Amina, Rehema, Seleman, Marcelina, Ashura, Mwajuma, Salima, Lydia, Fatuma, Mwajuma
Amina, who is in her early 30s, is a married woman with three children who are in school. For three years now she has been selling tie and dye clothes up country (this fabric is commonly known as batiki in Tanzania). She works from 10 am to 7 pm if she is in her trading center but normally she travels up country for business. She is able to make a small profit per month.

This will be her fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. The previous loans, all of which she has paid back successfully, she used to add more rolls of material for her tie and dye. She started by buying ten meters and now she can buy two rolls, which is a great improvement. She is really doing great and is happy with the loans. She used the profit she earned to start building her own house. She will use this loan to buy two rolls of material for making more tie and die pieces. She is dreaming of finishing her house.

Amina will share this loan with her ten member loan group "Lindi" who 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.
