In this Group: Merina, Rebeca, Mwajabu, Eunice, Elizabeth, Sabina, Salma
Merina, who is in her mid 30s, is married with two children who are still going to school. She has been a food vendor for 10 years now. She works from 6 am to 10 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This is her 12th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more food inventories and has paid back all her previous loans successfully. With the business profit earned,she has been able to cover school fees and household expenses. She also used the money to buy a mattress, TV, radio, saucepans for her business and a plot of land.

Merina will use this loan to increase the food stock for her food stall. She dreams of one day owning a big hotel servicing more people.
She will share this loan with her loan group "MOMELA (one)" which totals seven 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.

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.
