Karibu View Group
In this Group: Dorica, Maua, Mwendwa, Ester, Naomi, Mwajabu, Habiba, Jane, Tabu, Husna
Dorica, who is in her early 40s, is married and has three girls who attend school. Since 2008, she has been running two activities, selling dagaa (small dry fishes) and soft drinks. She works from 6 AM to 9 PM daily and is able to make a very good profit each month.

This will be her 10th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she repaid successfully, she purchased more dagaa, started selling soft drinks and bought a refrigerator for her business. With the returns earned, she paid school fees, repaired her business premise, installed a door in her house, bought a nice cupboard for her utensils and purchased a plot of land. She will use this loan to buy more dagaa and soft drinks. She dreams to build a nice family house.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Karibu View," which is comprised of 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying 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. The organization aims to reach out to micro entrepreneurs and provide them with financial and social intermediation services because capital is one of the major barriers to development and success for micro-enterprise initiatives in Tanzania.

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.
