In this Group: Veronica, Catherine, Rehema, Rose, Sabina, Asteria, Omari, Tatu, Furaha, Mohamed, Regina, Juma
Veronica is in her late 20s and is married with two children who are still going to school. She has been a food vendor for one year now. She works from 6:00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Veronica's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to open a shop and to pay the shop's rent. She bought a refrigerator and started selling cold drinks. She restocked the missing items in her food store and has managed to repay all her loans successfully. She used the profits to pay school fees and cover household expenses. She will use this loan to open another place for food vending. Her dream is to one day be able to own a hotel.

Veronica will share this loan with her loan group, "Malila", with 12 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loans.

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.
