Rubea S., 35, is married with five children. He has had a business selling fish since 2007. He works from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, selling from a small place and from door-to-door. He is able to earn a monthly profit of about $414.

This will be Rubea’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to buy more fish and he has paid back the loan successfully. He hopes for a new loan to continue to mprove on his stock.

Rubea will share this loan with his loan group, Wakorintho, comprised of 17 members, who will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.

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.
