Nuru H. is 35 years old, married and has two children. For the last seven years, she has made a living by running a beauty salon. She works from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily and makes a small monthly profit. This will be Nuru's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous ones, which she successfully repaid, to buy a hair dryer. She hopes to use this loan to buy clothing to sell to her customers. Nuru is a member of a loan group called Mt. Kipengere which has 18 members, each of whom holds the others accountable for paying back this loan. In this photo, we see Nuru sitting in the second row, third from left.

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.
