Mariam R. is in her early twenties and is married with one son. She has been running a small grocery store since 2007, from which she sells various products such as soda, juice, mobile phone vouchers etc. The shop is open between 6 am and 9 pm and earns Mariam a low monthly profit.

This will be Mariam's second loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Mariam used her first loan to increase her stock of goods, a loan which she has now successfully repaid. With her second loan, Mariam aims to once again increase her business by expanding her stock, and introducing some new products.

Mariam will share this loan with her loan group Minazin, which totals 16 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Mariam can be seen sitting second from right in the front row.

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.
