Ddc Group
In this Group: Mwamini, Saidi, Joyce, Justin, Amina, Bijeli, Happy, Zakaria, Mwamvua, Zainabu, Alex
Mwamini, who is in her early 30s, is married with five children. She has three boys and two girls who are in school. Since 1996, Mwamini has been running a mamalishe business selling food (breakfast, lunch, and supper). She works from 8am to midnight and is able to obtain a good profit every month.

This will be her second loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she will use to buy more food supplies for her mamalishe business. With the previous loan, which has been paid back successfully, Mwamini restocked her business with food cooking supplies like rice, maize flour, baking flour, sugar, etc. With the business profit she received, she covered part of her home expenses and school fees.

Mwamini dreams that one day she will be able to own a hotel.

Mwamini will share this loan with her loan group "DDC", which totals 11 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.
