Eva Makidadi, age 45, is married with five children (ages 28, 24, 21, 14 and 8). She has businesses selling charcoal and clothes. She started these businesses 20 years ago and works daily from 6am until 8pm. She is able to earn a monthly profit of around $285.


This will be Eva's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to build one room and to pay school fees and she has repaid the loans successfully. She now hopes for a third loan to pay school fees and to increase stock in both businesses.


Eva will share this loan with her loan group, Changamukeni, which totals 16 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable in paying back their loans. In the picture, Eva is third from left standing.

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. The organization aims to reach out to micro entrepreneurs and provide them with financial and social intermediation services because capital is one of the major barriers to development and success for micro-enterprise initiatives in Tanzania.

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.
