Aisha, who is in her mid-30s, is married and has two children. One child goes to school and another child is still small.

She has been a food vendor since 1999. She works from 4:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Aisha's fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to restock the missing items. She has paid all her loans back successfully. She used the profit to pay for school fees and to cover household expenses.

She will use this loan to increase the food stock by buying more rice, wheat flour, baking flour, beans, salt, and Irish potatoes. She dreams of owning a hotel.

Aisha will share this loan with her loan group, "MSISIRI," with nine members who will hold each other accountable for paying back 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.
