In this Group: Amina, Cornel, Jafari, Sunday, Honorina, Perpetua, Rashid, Rehema, Preskus
Amina, who is in her late 20s, is married and has two children who are in school. Since 2006, Amina has been making her living by running two small businesses. She owns a genge business selling fruits and vegetables, and she also cooks bites like chapati and half cake with fresh juice. This business enables her to increase her income. Amina starts her business at 7:00 am and closes at 9:00 pm daily. She is able to make a small profit each month.
Amina is requesting a fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She will use this loan to buy fruits and vegetables and new clothes to resell. With her previous four loans, which she repaid in full, she was able to service her business with new food ingredients and fruits and vegetables. Amina thanks Kiva lenders for their support in improving her business. She managed to earn a profit which she used to cover school and household expenses. She dreams that one day, she will be able to expand her business to other areas and to increase her income.
Amina will share this loan with her loan group CRANE, which totals nine 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.
