Zurekha is the leader of this ten-member group. She is a widow in her mid-fifties who has five grown children. She also has two grandchildren, both of whom are in school.

For the past five years Zurekha has sold clothes and tie-dyed fabrics, among other things. She works from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Zurekha’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy clothes to sell and tie-dye materials. She is doing great. She paid back her loan successfully and used her profits to pay for her grandchildren's school fees plus food and household needs.

Zurekha is now applying for a 3,320,000 TZS loan to be apportioned among those in her group. With her portion she plans to buy more clothes, fabric and fruits and vegetables to sell. She dreams of enlarging her tie-dye business and raising and selling poultry.

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.
