Joseph, who is in his early 50s, is married, with two children, one is a grown-up and one is still at school. He has been selling meat for fifteen years now. He works from 9.00 am to 9.00 pm daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be Joseph's 13th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy land, has built his small house, bought furniture, a radio, and a television set, paid school fees, recovered household expenses, and has successfully paid back all his loans.

Joseph wants a loan to buy more stock of meat. His dream is to one day be able to go up-country and buy things, like rice.

Joseph will share this loan with his loan group "Mtaji Wa Masikini Group," with ten members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
