Hilda, who is in her mid-50s, is married, with three grown-up children and grandchildren who go to school. She has been a food vendor for seven years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her 11th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to build a small house; to pay household expenses and her grandchildren's school fees, and to restock her food store. She has repaid all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy more food to stock and sell to more people. Her goal is one day to be able to add more rooms to her house.

Hilda will share this loan with her loan group, "Kakakuona." It consists of 16 members who hold one another 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.
