Willium S., who is in his early 30s, is married and has two children who are at school. For two years now, he has been making traditional baskets that he sells from door to door. He works from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Willium's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy material for making baskets and has paid back his loans successfully.

He has made a good number of baskets, and he hopes for a loan to travel to Nairobi, Kenya, to sell his baskets.

His dream is to one day be able to make very many baskets and even to employee some helpers.

Willium will share this loan with his loan group, "Protea," which has a total of 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In the picture, Willium is first on the left in a white shirt.

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. The organization aims to reach out to micro entrepreneurs and provide them with financial and social intermediation services because capital is one of the major barriers to development and success for micro-enterprise initiatives in Tanzania.

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.
