In this Group: Zulfa, Elias, Ramadhani, Moses, Burton, Mohamed, Francis, Fidelis, Emmanuel
Zulfa is in her mid 30s, widowed with five children. Two of her children are grown-ups and three are still going to school. She has been buying broiler chicken which she fries and then sells. She works from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more stock of chicken. She started with five pieces but now she can manage to buy thirty pieces. She has paid back all of her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and cover household expenses. She is doing fine and is happy with the loan which has helped her to make a living without a husband. She will use the loan to buy more chicken, cooking oil and charcoal for the business. Her dream is to one day build her own house.

Zulfa will share this loan with her loan group "Jiungeni" with nine members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.

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.
