JAMES, who is in his early 50s is married and has three children who are going to school. He has been doing two types of businesses. He has been running a retail shop and selling vegetable since 1998. He works from 6.00 am to 8.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be JAMES's 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to increase the shop's inventory and planted and sold more vegetables. He has paid back all his loan successfully. He used the profit to pay school fees, covered household expenses and has started building his house. He will use this loan to restock the missing items in the shop and to buy equipment for improving the farm and plant more vegetables. His dream is to one day be able to build and finish building his house.

James will share this loan with his loan group "VENEZUELA" with eleven 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.
