Christina, who is in her early 30s, is married with three children, one son and two daughters. Two of her children go to school but the last one is still small. She has been running two businesses, selling clothes door-to-door and selling chips. She works from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Christina's 5th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to start selling chips and also to increase her stock of clothes. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used her profit to pay school fees and to cover household expenses. She will use this loan to improve her selling place and to open another chips place. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

Christina will share this loan with her loan group, "Mwaminifu", which has 10 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.
