* not pictured
Ashura is in her early 30s and married with two children who go to school. For the past four years, she has been running a business selling second-hand clothes. Ashura is doing fine with her family and business. She works daily from six in the morning through six at night and is able to make a good monthly profit. Ashura will share her loan with her loan group, "Kariarkoo," which has nine members who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

Ashura is requesting a loan to buy second-hand clothing to sell. This will be her sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Ashura has successfully repaid her previous loans and was able to replenish her clothing stocks and earn more revenue. She used the profit from her previous loans to provide food for her family as well as cover household expenses and pay school fees. In the future, Ashura dreams of building a nice house for her family.

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.
