For two years now, Ziada has been running two enterprises: a food shop and a business selling clothes door-to-door. Ziada works from 8:00am to 8:30pm daily and is able to earn a fair income per month. She is looking forward to growing her business returns in order to improve her life by having better accommodations.

This is Ziada's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she will use to buy more business inventory, like food items and clothes to resell. Ziada dreams that one day she will be able to build a nice house. She will share this loan with her loan group "Faith," which totals 13 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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. The organization aims to reach out to micro entrepreneurs and provide them with financial and social intermediation services because capital is one of the major barriers to development and success for micro-enterprise initiatives in Tanzania.

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.
