Justine, who is in his early twenties, is married with one baby girl. For the past five years, he has been running a general store where he sells charcoal, fruits, and vegetables. Justine works from six in the morning through ten at night and is able to make a fair monthly profit. He will share this loan with his loan group “Momela,” which has 15 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

Justine is requesting his sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He will use this loan to increase his store’s inventory of charcoal, fruit, and vegetables. Justine used his previous loans to start his business and to provide for household and medical expenses. He has successfully repaid all of his previous loans. Justine's dream is to buy land one day.

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.
