In this Group: Aisha, Magreth, Khalifa, Omary, Robson, Ashirafu, Vumilia, Halima
Aisha, who is in her mid 30s, is married with two children, both of whom are grown-ups. She has been running a beauty salon for five years now. She works from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Aisha's 5th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to repair her salon by putting in wall tiles, restocking the out-of-stock salon equipment; she has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profits to start building her own house and cover household expenses. She will use this loan to buy more salon equipment and to start selling cosmetics in her salon. Her dream is to one day be able to finish building her house.

Aisha will share this loan with her loan group Babati. Its 8 members 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.
