Zaituni, who is in her late 30s, is married with six children who are still going to school. She has been running several businesses selling soft drinks and fruits and vegetables for one year now. She works from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Zaituni's 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase the soft drinks, fruits and vegetables and to start selling dry fish. She has paid back all of her loans successfully. She used the profits to pay school fees and household expenses. She will use this to buy more dry fish to resell. She dreams of building her own house.

Zaituni will share this loan with her loan group "RUFIJI", which consists of 16 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.
