Maua is a married woman in her mid-thirties with two school-going kids. She has been running two businesses, one selling charcoal and the other a broiler business. She is in these businesses for six years. She works from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a good profit per month.

This will be Maua's sixth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which were repaid successfully, she restocked on charcoal and started her broiler business. With the returns received, she paid school fees and household expenses. She will use this loan to restock her charcoal supply again. She dreams to expand her businesses more.

Maua will share this loan with her loan group Salasala, which totals 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

About Tujijenge Tanzania

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.
