This is Julius's third loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which were paid back successfully, he managed to restock more different food items in his business. With the profit earned, he will proceed with building his house. He will use this loan to increase the shop inventory, this will help him to reach more customers and increase more incomes. Julius's dream is to finish building his home.

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.
