Jonscorner B Group
In this Group: Rahim, Anset, Asha, Elizabeth, Chalo
Rahim L., age 50, is married with 3 children (ages 28, 21, and 18). He is also taking care of his wife's late brother's son, who is 15. He sells medicine for animals in villages upcountry, and when he comes back he manages his small farm with various crops. He started this business 1 year ago. He opens from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily and is able to make around $800 monthly profit.

In the past, Rahim has taken out 1 loan from Tujijenge Tanzania to increase his business and to start a chicken business. He hopes for a new loan to buy more medicines because he has big orders from Masai people for their animals. Rahim will share this loan with subgroup B, who sell food, fish, snacks, juice, and bread. This subgroup belongs to the Jonscorner group, whose members monitor each other in paying back the loans.

In the picture Rahim is standing on the right.

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.
