Halima, who is in her early 40s, is married with two children who are grown-ups.

She has been running three types of businesses, she sells water from big tanks, sews bedsheets with embroidery, and buys empty plastic bottles which she sells to the plastic factories. She has been in these businesses for four years now. She works from 6.00am to 8.00pm daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be Halima's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase stock on all her businesses and she has paid back her loan successfully. She used the profit to cover household expenses and started building her house. She is really happy with the loan and is making a lot of progress.

She will use this loan to buy more empty plastic bottles and also to buy broken plastic buckets to sell in the same plastic factory. She dreams of building and finishing her house.

Halima will share this loan with her loan group, Tabora Group, with ten members. The members of the group 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.
