Peter, who is in his late 20s, is married with two children. One of them goes to school. He has been selling chips since 2006. He works from 11:00 a.m. to midnight daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be his 11th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy a plot of land and buy chairs and table for the use of his customers. He also paid household expenses and has paid back all his loans successfully. He wants a loan to buy more sacks of Irish potatoes to make and sell more chips. His dream is to one day be able to build his house.

Peter will share this loan with his loan group, Beljing, which has a total of 14 members who will hold each other accountable for 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. 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.
