Karibu View Group
In this Group: Dorica, Madina, Jane, Maua, Naomi, Habiba, Tabu, Mwajabu
Dorica, who is in her early 40s, is married with three children who are still going to school. She has been running two businesses: dagaa (fried small fish) and a grocery. She works from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Dorica's eighth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more stock of fried dagaa (very small fish) and to restock the out-of-stock drinks in the grocery inventory. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to buy a plot. She really appreciates the loan, which used to be weekly but now it has gone to bi-weekly. She is also happy that the percent of interest rate has gone down. She is really doing great. She will use this loan to buy chairs and tables for the grocery and more drinks. She dreams of opening a supermarket.

Dorica will share this loan with her loan group "Karibu View," which has eight members. The members of the group 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.
