Tuhuma is in her early 40s and is a widow with four children and two dependents who are the children of late relatives. She has been selling sarongs and fabrics door to door for 12 years now. She works from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Tuhuma's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase the sarongs and the fabrics that she sells, paid school fees, bought a TV, DVD player and deep freezer, repaired her house by making a smooth floor and painting all her rooms, and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a new loan to buy more sarongs and fabrics to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to build a business premises and stop selling door to door.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Moyo Safi", which has 15 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.
