Riziki, who is in her mid-30s, is single with four children. Two of her children do not go to school because she has no school fees but the two younger ones go to primary schools. She also takes care of her mother. She has had a food vendor business for five years now. She works from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m (only for four hours) and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge, Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more food stock. As a single mother, she has to take care of her children and has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy 25 kilos of rice, 30 kilos of wheat flour, 1 backet of cooking oil and a sack of charcoal. Her dream is to be able to build her own house one day.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Magu", which has a total of 15 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.
