Mwajuba J. is in her late thirties and is married with four children. Majuba has been running a small fish restaurant for the past 20 years. The shop is open between 11:00 am and 04:00 pm daily and earns Mwajuba a low monthly profit.

This will be Mwajuba's fourth loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Mwajuba used her previous loans to buy land and started to build a new house for herself. These loans have since been successfully repaid. Mwajuba will use her fourth loan to increase basic supplies for the shop, such as plates, buckets, cutlery and cups. Mwajuba's dream is to one day finish her house.

Mwajuba will share this loan with her loan group Momela, which totals 19 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Mwajuba can be seen wearing a green dress 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.
