Hadija is a 38-year-old married mother of five children between 13 and 20 years old. Her youngest three children are at school. Hadija sells fruits and vegetables at a tabletop stand in the Buja market near Dar Es Salaam. She has been running this business for three years. She leaves her home at 5am each morning to buy the produce, and after a day at the market, she returns home around 9pm in the evening. She earns a profit of about $50 a month. This is Hadija's first loan from Tujijenge and she will use it to increase her stock and variety of fruits and vegetables so that she can continue to support her children.

Hadija is the Treasurer of the Mnarari Group. She can be seen raising her hand in the photo. The group's 18 members run a variety of businesses including sales of clothes, medicine, food, and khangas (traditional East African cotton fabric).

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.
