John, who is in his early 30s, is single with one child who is still small. He has been selling fruits and vegetables for two years now. He works from 8.30 am to 10.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be John's 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to increase his stock of fruits and vegetables. He has paid back all his loans successfully. He used the profit to cover household expenses. He will use this loan to buy more fruits and vegetables to resell. He dreams of having an individual loan and leaving the group loan.

John will share this loan with his loan group Level One which has nine members (one lady has been cut in half by the photograph). 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.
