Hilda B. is in her early thirties, married, and the mother of two children, one attending school and the other a baby. Hilda owns a cow whose milk she sells, a business she has operated since 2008. She works from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Hilda's fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to establish a chicken business and a pig business, neither of which succeeded. She then bought the cow for milk-selling. Having repaid all of her previous loans, she will use this one to repair an enclosure for pigs. Her dream is to one day have a big farm for a variety of animals.

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

In the picture, Hilda is second from the right in a blue and white 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. 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.
