Zainabu, who was born in the early 1960s, is married with three boys and a girl, who are in school. For seven years now, Zainabu has had two food businesses. She has a fruits and vegetable business, working from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, and a chips business, where she has a helper from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. She usually joins work with her helper after closing her genge business. Zainabu is able to make a good profit per month.

This is her tenth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, which will be used to buy chickens which are mostly demanded by her chips customers. With the previous loans, all of which paid back successfully, she bought sacks of Irish potatoes, cooking oil and eggs. She used her business profit to cover school fees and home expenses. Zainabu wishes to one day be in a position to finish building her house.

Zainabu will share this loan with her loan group, "Monrovia", which totals 14 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.
