Fausta, who is in her late twenties, is married with two children. Her children both attend school. She has been a tailor since 2005. Every day, she works from 8 am to 8 pm and, by doing so, is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This would be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy tailoring items and a sewing machine, and for household expenses. She has paid all of her loans back successfully. She is now seeking a loan to buy more and different types of materials. Her dream is to one day be able to start selling fabrics and sarongs.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Becham," which has a total of 15 members, all of whom hold each other accountable in paying back their portions of the loan.

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.
