Zainabu, who is in her early 50s, is married with six children; three of them are still in school. She has been running sever businesses, selling fish, tea with bites, and cooked food daily, and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Zainabu's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase on fish and restore the missing items in the food store. She has paid back her loan successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and household expenses, and save some in the bank.

She really appreciates the loan, and gives thanks to all who have supported her and her group. She will use this loan to buy more fish, rice, backing flour, maize flour, beans, and cooking oil. She dreams of building a place where she can be selling cold drinks.

Zainabu will share this loan with her loan group, Bahari, which has 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.
