Christina, who is in her early 50s, is married with four children. Two of them go to school and two are grown-ups. She has three grand-children who are still going to school. She has been running a fruit and vegetable business where she also sells daga and salt. She works from 4.00am to 8.00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her seventh loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to restock the missing items in her stock of fruit and vegetables, bought a plot of land, bought some bricks, paid school fees and helped with household expenses. She has paid all her loans back successfully.

She wants a loan to buy more fruit and vegetables and to buy more bricks. Her dream is to one day to be able to start building her own house, now that she has bought enough bricks.

Christina will share this loan with her loan group "Nazareth". It has 17 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
