Frida, who is in her late 40s, is single with two children: one is still at school and the other one is grown up. She has been running a grocery store for four years now. She works from 8 a.m. to midnight daily and is able to make a good monthly profit. She will use this loan to restock the missing items in the grocery store. She dreams of opening a bar.

This will be Frida's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase stock for the grocery store and also bought more drinks.

Frida will share this loan with her loan group, "Tabora", which has ten 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.
