Nuru is in her early 30s. She is living with a man and has two boys, one in school and the other a baby. She has been running a food shop for four years now. She works from 8am to 9pm daily and is able to make a fair profit.

This will be her 5th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to restock existing and missing items in the food shop, and to cover school fees and household expenses. She has paid back all of her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to restock more food items, to pay school fees and to finish building her family house. Her dream is to one day be able to own a big beauty salon.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Saiberia, which totals 11 members. They 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.
