Zena, who is in her early 20s, is married with three kids who are in school. Zena has had a mamalishe (street food) business for three years now. She works from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm daily and is able to earn a good monthly profit.

This will be her second loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loan to buy food cooking supplies like maize and baking flour, beans, rice, sugar and firewood for cooking. She is doing great in her business and managed to pay back her loan successfully. She used her profit to cover household expenses and school fees. Zena will use this loan to buy more food cooking supplies for her business. She dreams that one day she will be able to own a hotel.

She will share this loan with her loan group " Beijing ", which includes 10 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.
