Asha, who is in her early 30s, is a married woman with three children who are in school. For a period of three years now, she has been running a retail shop business.

This will be her fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more shop foods, which she resold to more clients. She started a clothes-selling business (fabrics selling). She has paid back all her loans successfully. With the profits received, she bought a TV, fridge and radio and covered home expenses. She will use this loan to buy retail shop stock to resell. She dreams to improve her business.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Norway, which totals nine 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.
