Amina Jamari runs a food vending service. She has been in this business for the past 10 years. She works from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit. Amina is in her early thirties. She and her husband have four children who are still enrolled in school.

This will be Amina's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her food stock and has paid back her loans successfully. She hopes to obtain a new loan in order to continue to increase her stock of food items required for her business. Her dream is to better support her children and to see them enrolled in good schools.

Amina will share this loan with her loan group, "Mwaminifu." The group has a total of 16 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

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.
