Ladislaus, who is in his early 30s, is married. He has been running a business of selling many types of soup (using the head, legs, and intestines of chickens, and cow legs and heads) since 2005. He works from 6:00 am to midnight and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be his second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to sell all his types of soup and has paid back his loan successfully. He now wants a loan to buy fish and chicken, some to boil and and the other part to fry and sell it dry. His dream is to one day be able to build his own house.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Mgombolwa," which has a total of 19 members who will hold each other accountable for paying their loans.

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.
