Ari Mpya Group
In this Group: Muslima, Mariam, Ashura, Tausi, Amina, Mwadhan, Maka
Muslima, who is in her mid-40s, is married and has two children -- one son and one daughter. One of her children is enrolled in school. For seven years, Muslima has had a cosmetics shop. She opens from 10:00AM to 7:00PM, daily. From working at the business for this time, Muslima is able to receive a better return per month.

This is Muslima's tenth loan request to Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, Muslima purchased more cosmetics to sell at her shop. She will use this new loan to buy products that are missing from her cosmetics line. She uses her profits from business to cover school fees, home expenses, and to save in her bank account. Her dreams are to be a big businesswoman, and well-known.

Muslima will share this loan with her loan group, Ari Mpya, which is comprised of seven members. The members 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.
