Roda, who is in her early 30's, is married and has two school aged children. She has been a tailor, selling bed sheets and fabrics, since 2009. She works from 8 a.m to 8 p.m daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her 5th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy a roll of cotton material for bedsheets and dress making, opened a shop for the tailoring business, paid school fees, and paid for the shop rent. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy 6 rolls of cotton materials and sewing items. (Normally a good cotton roll contains about 120 meters.) Her dream is to one day be able to buy a motor cycle and give it to her husband who will use it for the transport business.

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