Victoria K. (pictured, in the middle row on the left, with the brown shirt) is in her early thirties and is married with two children. To earn a living and to support her family, Victoria runs a small restuarant, where she sells ready-made food for lunch and dinner. Victoria has been running this business for the past three years. Her business is open daily between 5 am and 4 pm and earns her modest monthly profit.

This is the first loan Victoria has sought with Tujijenge Tanzania. Victoria would like to use the loan proceeds to buy a cooler box. The cooler would allow her to begin selling cold soft drinks along with the food, which she is sure will improve the reputation and profitability of her business. Victoria's dream is to keep expanding the business so that she can open a larger restaurant.

Victoria will share this loan with her loan group, Tujijenge Tanzania, which includes 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying their respective portions of 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. 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.
