Esther N. is in her mid-twenties and is married with two children. Esther has been running a small fruit and vegetable stall near her house for the past year. The shop is open between 08:00 am and 07:00 pm and earns Esther a low monthly profit.

This will be Esther's second loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Esther used her first loan to buy some second-hand clothes, which she began selling door to door. This loan has since been successfully repaid. With her second loan, Esther aims to increase her stock of vegetables at the store. Esther's dream is to earn enough money to buy land and to start building herself a house.

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

In the picture, Esther is the first on the left, wearing black and white.

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.
