Pili, who is in her 20s, is married. She has two girls: one goes to school, and the other one is still a baby. Since 2004, Pili has had a business that sells different kinds of clothes. She is doing fine with the business and family as well. She works from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and is able to earn a fair monthly profit.

This will be her fifteen loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy iron sheets, sacks of cements for house-building preparation, clothes, a TV, DVD, fridge, computer, covered school fees and home expenses, and has paid back all her loans successfully. She will use this loan to buy a plot of land and add more clothes to her shop to sell. Her dream is to one day be able to own enough money so that she can deposit some in her kids' bank accounts.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Khanga, which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

About Tujijenge Tanzania

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.
