Salma is in her late 50s and is single. For the past 30 years, she has been a food vendor who works from seven in the morning through two in the afternoon to make a small monthly profit. Salma takes care of her relatives. She will share her loan with her loan group, "Ununio," which has a total of 15 members who will hold each other accountable for repaying their loans.

Salma is requesting her fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania to increase her stock of ingredients and products to sell more food. She successfully repaid her previous loans and used her loans to sell juice, water, and sodas and to pay for household expenses. Salma's dream is to one day be able to buy a fridge and sell cold drinks.

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.
