Rehema, who is in her early 40s, is married with three children, two of whom go to school and one of whom is grown-up. She has been running a grocery business for ten years now. She works from 8pm to midnight daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Rehema's 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to restock items in her store and buy chicken broilers to sell. She has paid back all her loans successfully and was happy with them. She used the profit to pay school fees and household expenses. She will use this new loan to buy beers, whiskeys, wines, sodas, juices and water for her store. She hopes to sell her drinks at wholesale prices.

Rehema will share this loan with her loan group "Mlimani", which has thirteen 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.
