Jumanne M., age 65, is married with three children, ages 28, 24, and 21. He has a "Genge" (Kiswahili for a stand selling fruits and vegetables) business which he started six years ago. He works daily from 5 am until 7:30 pm and is able to earn a monthly profit of around US$ 105.

This will be Jumanne’s 7th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to expand the business by buying more fruits and vegetables; he paid school fees and has paid back his loan successfully. He wants a new loan to further increase his stock in the "genge".

Jumanne will share this loan with his loan group, Mapinduzi, which totals 15 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable in paying back their loans. In the picture, Jumanne is the 1st on the right in the blue shirt.

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. The organization aims to reach out to micro entrepreneurs and provide them with financial and social intermediation services because capital is one of the major barriers to development and success for micro-enterprise initiatives in Tanzania.

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.
