In this Group: Njiwa, Mwanaisha, Rehema, Zulfa, Omary, Pili, Mwanaisha, Mariam, Jumanne, Saidi, Deodata
Njiwa is a carpenter in his mid-twenties. He has been engaged in his trade for the past seven years, making and selling different kinds of furniture. He works from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and has been able to earn a good monthly profit. He supports one son who attends school.

This will be Njiwa's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his previous loans to buy more carpentry wood, pay school fees, and support his household expenses. He has paid back both his previous loans successfully.

Njiwa is now requesting a loan to increase his stock of wood. His dream is eventually to improve his business by purchasing electronic carpentry equipment.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Yellow," which consists of 11 members. The members of the group 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.

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.
