Aziza, who is in her mid-20s, is single. She has been selling tie-dyed materials since 2008. She works from 7.00 am to 5.00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

From Tujijenge Tanzania, this is her 6th loan request which she will use to buy more tie-dyed materials to sell to more people. With the previous loans, all of which were paid back successfully, she managed to purchase more tie dyed materials. Aziza used her business profit to cover home expenses. Specifically, she bought iron-sheets for house building preparation and a fridge. Aziza dreams that one day she will be able to build a house.

She will share this loan with her loan group" Mawenzi Group" which totals 11 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.
