Siliviana is a married woman who is running a retail food shop, selling items like rice, maize flour, baking flour, beans, sugar, salts and other food items. She is running this project together with her husband, who in the previous month was involved in a motorcycle accident, but he is showing a good recovery.

Siliviana is currently aged in her 40s and has five children: three sons and two daughters who are enrolled in school. She starts working from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair profit per month.

This will be her first loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She will use this loan to restock the missing food items in her shop. She dreams that one day, she will be able to widely expand her business.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Mt. Elgon, which totals 10 members. The members of the group 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.
