Mgeni, who is in his early 40s, is married and has three children who are still going to school. He has been running a business of selling fruits and vegetables since 1989. He works from 7.00am to 6.00pm daily and has been able to make a fair profit.

This will be his 15th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to renovate the place where he sells his fruits and vegetables; it looks attractive. He bought more fruits and vegetables, looked after his family's welfare and has paid back all his loans successfully. Mgeni wants a loan to buy more fruits and vegetables to resell. His dream is to one day be able to go up-country and bring rice and beans to sell at wholesale prices.

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.
