Scolastica is in her early 20s and is single. She has been a food vendor since 2012. She works from 6 am to 8 pm daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be Scolastica's sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to restock the out of stock items in the food store. She used the profit to pay for her college fees, saved some, and used the rest for loan repayments. She will use this loan to buy more stock of food like, a sack of rice, 10 kilos of beans, a bucket of cooking oil, 50 kilos of maize flour, and more cold drinks. She dreams of finishing college.

Scolastica will share this loan with her loan group "MBAYUWAYU". The group has eight members who 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.
