* not pictured
Mwanahamis sells fruits and vegetables to earn an income. In the evenings, after she closes her fruit and vegetable stand, she prepares and sells snacks such as samosas and bagia bites (smaller versions of traditional Tanzanian fried chickpea buns). She is in her mid-forties. She and her husband have five school-going children.

This will be Mwanahamis's seventh loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to replenish out-of-stock items in her fruits and vegetables business. She also used her loan funds to start selling her samosas and bagia bites, allowing her to increase her profit. She used her profits to help her husband to support the household and pay for their children's school fees. She has successfully repaid all her previous loans.

She will use her present loan to buy more tomatoes, onions, potatoes, and mangoes, which are currently out of stock in her business, and to buy more ingredients for making samosas and bagia bites.

Mwanahamis dreams of living a good life with her family.

She will share this loan with her loan group, which is called Tupendane C. It has 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
