Hadija, who is in her mid 20s, is single with one small child. She has had a stall place for one year now where she sells sodas, juice, water and bites (like small cakes). She works from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to sell mandazi (fried bread similar to donuts), vitumbuwa (a breakfast dish), small ice cubes, sodas, juice, water, bites and for household expenses. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to increase her stock of sodas, juice, water, bites, mandanzi and boiled sweet potatoes. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Twitange" which has a total of 20 members who will hold each other accountable for 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.
