Paulina is in her late thirties and is married with three children who go to school. She has been a food vendor and sold quarried stone for two years now. She works from 6.00am to 10.00pm daily and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Paulina’s fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase the stock in her food vendor business and to pay school fees for her children. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to buy kitchen utensils and stock her food business. Paulina’s dream is to one day be able to buy land and build her own house.

Paulina will share this loan with her loan group, "Wazo Tegeta", which has a total of 17 members. The members of the group 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.
