Jackson, who is in his late 30s, is married and has two children, one boy and one girl. Both of them are still going to school. He has been running different types of businesses, poultry and milk selling, for six years now. He works from 5.00 am to 6.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Jackson's 15th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to start all his businesses. He used to have a garden, where he planted and sold vegetables. Then he bought chicks, fed them until adulthood, and sold them at a good price. He bought a calf, fed it until it became a big cow, and now he sells milk in plenty. He has managed to repay all his loans successfully. He used the profits to build two houses and covered his household's living expenses. He will use this new loan to buy chicken feed and insecticide. His dream is to become an international businessman.

Jackson will share this loan with his loan group, Malengo, which has 15 members in total, 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.
