Martina R., who is in her late thirties, is married with four children. She sells fabrics from door to door. She has been in this business for three years and works from 9.00am to 6.00pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Martina's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase her fabrics stock and has paid back successfully. She hopes for a loan to open a shop where she will sell her fabrics and start selling juice and water. Her dream is to one day buy a small car so that she will be mobile and deliver her fabrics to more customers.

Martina will share this loan with her loan group "Range" which has a total of 16 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In the picture, Martina is behind second from right, back 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.
