Rajabu S., age 25, is single with two older brothers and one younger brother. He has a small business selling cassava and sweet potatoes. He opened the business in 2005 and works long daily hours from 5 am until 6:30 pm.

This will be Rajabu’s 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to establish and grow his current cassava and sweet potato stand, and he has paid back his loan successfully. He hopes to use this loan to increase his stocks even more.

Rajabu belongs to the Loyola Group, which totals 24 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable for paying back their loans. In the picture, Rajabu is sitting next to the man in white shirt on the right side.

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.
