Aisha, who is in her mid 20s, has one daughter who goes to school. She has been running a business of selling 'bites' like chapati, mandazi and samosas for two years now. She works from 6.00 am to 12 noon (for six hours only) daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Aisha's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase her stock of baking flour, cooking oil, charcoal, Irish potatoes, onions and carrots. She has paid back her loan successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and for household expenses. She will use this loan to buy more baking flour, cooking oil and charcoal to make more 'bites' to sell to more people. She dreams of owning a restaurant.

Aisha will share this loan with her loan group "KANDORO" 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.
