In this Group: Edda, Tabia, Mrashi, Sudy, Khadija, Vaileth, Tabu, Mgeni, Hakika, Husna, Saidi, Omary
Edda is 38 years old and married with three children (two boys and a girl). Two of the children are in school and the third is still an infant. Since 2010, Edda has been running a retail shop. She is working hard. She works from 8am to 12pm daily and she is able to make a small monthly profit.

Edda is requesting a second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to purchase more shop inventory (soda, juice, boxes of different kinds of pens, wheat flour, etc.) and to cover household expenses. She has paid back her loan successfully. She plans to use the second loan to restock the missing items in her retail shop so she will be able to sell to more people. Her dream is to one day be able to own a big wholesale shop.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Mlimani" which has a total of 12 members. The members of the group 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.
