Dastan, who is in his early 30s, is married with triplets who are still young. He has been selling chips and chicken, chips and eggs, and chips and mishikaki for one year now. He works from 8 a.m to 11 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be his third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy Irish potatoes, pay rent, and take care of his triplets. He has paid back his loans successfully. Dastan wants a loan to buy more sacks of Irish potatoes, chicken, and eggs. His dream is to one day be able to buy a plot of land.

He will share this loan with his loan group, "Norway", which has a total of 15 members who will hold each other accoutable in paying back their loans.

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.
