Afua is in her late 40s, single and the mother of one child who is in college. Since 2006, she has earned a living by running a food cafe. She works from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit. She is requesting her fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to restock her cafe and pay school fees, and has repaid all of these loans successfully. She plans to use this new loan to buy more supplies for her cafe and pay school fees. Her dream is to one day build her own house. She will share this loan with her group "Jasiri," which has 17 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.
