Atanasia, who is in her late 20s, is single and has two children, who go to school. For a period of 18 months, Atanasia has been earning her living by running two different businesses, selling groceries and cloth. She is a really hard-working woman. She works from 4:00 PM to 11:00 PM daily, and she is able to earn a good profit per month.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous two loans to increase her inventories, buying drinks to sell in the grocery business and fabrics to sell in the cloth business. She covered her household's expenses and repaid her previous loans successfully. Now she is requesting a loan to increase the inventories of her two businesses. Her dreams are to be able to build her family a house one day, and to own a big beauty salon.

Atanasia will share this loan with her borrowing group, Kitulano, which totals 25 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.
