Sada M. is in her mid-forties and is married with three children. Sada runs a fruit and vegetable stall from which she sells tomatoes and onions. She has been doing this since 2000. The stall is open between 6:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and earns Sada a low monthly profit.

This will be Sada's third Motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A Mothisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. Sada used her previous loans to increase her stock of onions. These loans have since been successfully repaid. With this loan, Sada aims to increase her stock of tomatoes as well. Sada's dream is to one day buy a sewing machine and start making her own clothing.

Sada will share this loan with her loan group Neema-Kimara, which totals 21 members, who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans. In the photo, Sada can be seen in the first row, wearing a black blouse and a pink head cover.

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.
