Mwajuma M. is in her late forties. She is married and has a 7-year-old daughter. Mwajuma has been running a food vending business since 2007. Between 6:00 am and 5:00 pm daily, Mwajuma provides ready-cooked meals to her customers. The business earns Mwajuma a low monthly profit.

This will be Mwajuma's second loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Mwajuma used her first loan to increase her capital, allowing her to stock up on goods faster when they ran out. This loan has since been successfully repaid. With her second loan, Mwajuma aims to increase her stock and to continue to build herself a new house.

Mwajuma will share this loan with her loan group Flamingo, which totals 17 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Mwajuma can be seen on the far right wearing red.

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.
