Zimbabwe Group
In this Group: Teddy, Zubeda, Salma
Teddy, who is in her early 50s, is a divorcee with four children, and only one is still in college. The three are grown up. She has been running two businesses: a food cafe and an electric money transfer. She has been in her business since 1996. She works from 7AM to 10PM daily and is able to make a very good monthly payment.

This will be Teddy's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to open another branch of M-pesa and bought a glass cupboard for keeping ready M-pesa chips. She has paid back her loan successfully. She used the profit to buy a plot of land, paid school fees, and covered household expenses. She will use this loan to recharge her chip vaults and to restock food cooking ingredients in the food cafe. She dreams of being a manager of a big company.

Teddy will share this loan with her loan group "ZIMBABWE," which has three 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.
