Josephat, who is in his early 30's, is the married father of three children, one of whom attends school. He has had a sausage-selling business for four years now, delivering his product to hotels and bars. Working from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, he is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Josephat's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania; his previous one, since repaid, was used to buy more sausages and pay for his land. He will use this loan to buy additional sausages and to start building his house. His dream is to one day be able to finish his house.

Josephat will share this loan with his loan group "Dove", which has a total of 14 members who will hold each other accountable in 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.
