Asha Hamisi, who is in her late thirties, is married with 5 children. She has been running a salon since 2000. She works from 8.30am to 10.00pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Asha's second loan from Tanzania Limited. She used the previous loan to start selling fabric and sarongs in her saloon. She also bought salon equipment. She has paid back her loan successfully. She now hopes for a loan to buy salon equipment. Her dream is to, one day, open a food shop and sell at wholesale prices.

Asha will share this loan with her loan group, "Actable the Best", which has a total of 15 members. The group members will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In the picture, Asha is 1st on the left in the second row.

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.
