In this Group: Rukia, Mariam, Asia, Eva, Halima
Rukia is a mother of five school-aged children and is not married. For four years now, she has been managing a poultry business, raising broilers to sell. She is at her business from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. per working day and is able to make a fair profit each month.

This will be her fourth loan withTujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans, all of which were paid back successfully, to buy chicks and chicken feed and to keep managing her business needs. She used her profits to cover school fees and home food expenses and saved part of them. She dreams of buying a truck for her business.

Rukia will share this loan with her loan group, Destiny, which totals five members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan. She will use her portion of the loan to buy chicks and chicken feed to improve production.

About Tujijenge Tanzania

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.
