Tupendane A Group
In this Group: Sauda, Yusuph, Faidha, Revocatus
Sauda is a mother in her mid-thirties and has two sons who are at school. She is married and supports her family living by managing a business selling medicine (pharmacy). Sauda has been in this business for four years. Before she started it, she was employed as a nurse and pharmacist in someone's hospital. She steadily struggled for a long time and now manages her own business. Sauda's ambition is to be a greatly successful businesswoman. She works from 8 am to 9 pm per working day and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

She is requesting her fourteenth loan through Tujijenge Tanzania. With her previous loans, all of which paid were back successfully, she rented a nice business room, paid for six months of electricity and rent charges, and grew her business capital. Sauda received a profit which she used to plow back into her business to expand it. She will use this loan to replenish her business with more inventory. She really appreciates Kiva for their support.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Tupendane A" which totals four members. Together, the group members will hold each other accountable for repaying 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.

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.
