Uhai Group
In this Group: Sakina, Yohana, Yundu
Sakina is in her early 30s and is single with four kids who are still in school. She has been running two projects, a boutique selling clothes and shoes and a catering business for fifteen years. Sakina works at her businesses from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. per working day and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This is Sakina’s second loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to replenish her boutique with clothes, bags, and shoes. She successfully paid back the loan.

Sakina earned extra income which she used to cover household expenses, school fees, and house rent. She covered part of the house building expenses. She will use this new loan to buy a fridge and to buy clothes to meet her customers' demand. In the coming years, Sakina would like to open a hotel.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Uhai, which has three 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.
