Waridi Pendo Group
In this Group: Amina, Claus, Veronica, Neema, Deuc, Esta, Ziada
Amina is aged in her early thirties and has two kids who are at school. Amina, who is single, supports her family's living with a mamalishe (small restaurant) business. She has been working in this category for five years now and is able to make a good profit each month. Her business is open from 5 AM to midnight.

Amina is requesting a seventh loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans (all of which she paid back successfully) to grow her business service by adding a new food service (selling chicken soup) and extending her food service to midnight. Before, Amina was operating her business up to noon time because her business capital was small and did not enable Amina to meet all demanded food items.

She is so thankful for Kiva's loan support. Amina earned a profit which she used to buy a home cupboard and TV and to pay school fees and home food expenses. She will use this loan to buy food cooking ingredients for her mamalishe. Her ambition is to greatly improve her business.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Waridi Pendo, which totals seven 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.
