Malila Group
In this Group: Tatu, Veronica, Furaha, Omari
Tatu, who is in her late 20s, is married with two children, one of whom goes to school and the other is still small. She has been selling fabrics and bed sheets for two years now. She works from 4 pm to 6 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Tatu's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy materials to make bed sheets and to buy fabrics. She sells her products door to door and has managed to pay back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees, to cover household expenses and to start building her house. She is happy with the loan and appreciates everyone who supported the Malila group with the loan. She will use this loan to buy good materials to make up-to-date bedsheets and to increase her stock of fabrics. Her dream is to finish building her house.

Tatu will share this loan with her loan group "Malila", which has four 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.
