Tamalinda Group
In this Group: Naomi, Tatu, Shabani
Naomi is a single mother with two children, one is in school and another has completed school. For five years now, Naomi (aged late thirties) has been managing her family by running a clothes business (fabrics) door to door. She works from 9am to 6pm per working day and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she will use to increase her inventory of fabrics to resell. Naomi's previous loans, all of which have been paid back in full, were used to buy more fabrics for her business. Naomi is working hard to make her business succeed. She used her profits to buy a radio, TV and sofa set. She paid household expenses and saved some in her bank account. Naomi dreams to take her own bigger loan.

She will share this loan with her loan group, " TAMALINDA", which totals 3 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.
