Alfred is in his earlier 30s. He is married with 2 children. His oldest child is in school and he has another child who was just recently born. For the past 7 years, Alfred has been selling fruits and vegetables. He works from 5 am to 10 pm each day and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Alfred's tenth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He has used his previous loans to buy a plot of land, for household expenses and school fees, and to purchase additional fruit. He has successfully paid back all of his loans. Alfred will use this loan to buy more fruits and vegetables and to begin selling rice, as well. His dream is to one day be able to build his own house.

Alfred will share this loan with his loan group. The group is called “Mrarangrangi” and has 20 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

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.
