Tatu, who is in her early 30s, is a single woman with two children (a boy and a girl) who are in school. For a period of five years now, Tatu has been managing her family expenses by running a grocery hut selling fruits and vegetables. She says that it is a good business to be in. She works from 07am to 9pm daily and is able to make a fair profit per month.

This will be her 4th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which paid back successfully, she managed to increase her store inventory. With the profits earned she covered school fees and family expenses. She will use this loan to buy more genge (grocery hut) stocks. Tatu dreams to buy a plot of land and build a nice house.

She will share this loan with her loan group "TOPI" which totals 14 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.
