Safina, who is in her mid 30's, is single with two children who are still going to school. She has been running a grocery store business for five years now. She works from 8:00 a.m. to midnight daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Safina's 6th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy drinks, a motorcycle, chairs and tables, and to pay a helper. She has repaid all her loans successfully. She used her profit to pay school fees, put electricity in her house and cover household expenses. She will use this loan to buy different types of drinks to resell and to meet customers' demands. She dreams of improving her business by putting in better chairs and tables and a good stock of drinks.

Safina will share this loan with her loan group "Mabomba Mengi," which has five 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.
