Peter L. is in his late fifties and is married with five children. He has been selling leftover construction supplies since 2007 and he is proud of his business. The business is open between 9 am and 6 pm and earns Peter a good monthly profit.

This will be Peter's third loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his two previous loans to increase his supply of materials, loans which he has successfully repaid. Peter aims to use his third loan to once again increase his stock, which he hopes will lead to further expansion.

Peter will share this loan with his loan group Migombani, which totals 17 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Peter can be seen 4th from left in the back row.

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.
