Sandary K., who is in her mid-forties, is married with five children. She has been operating a food vendor business for four years. She works from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (only seven hours) and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Sandary's sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her business and to pay school fees and bus fare for her children. She has repaid her loans successfully. Sandary hopes for a loan to open a small shop and to start selling wheat flour, sweets, biscuits, groundnuts and sugar. Her dream is to one day open a stationery shop.

Sandary will share this loan with her loan group "Crane", which consists of 18 members, who will hold each other accountable in repaying their loans. In the photo, Sandary is in front in an orange dress.

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.

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.
