Salum, who is in his early 40s, is married and has three children, one of whom goes to school and the other two are still too young. He has been running a food shop for five years now. He works from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Salum's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to restock the missing items in his food shop and pay school fees. He has paid back his loan successfully. He wants another loan to re-stock his shop with items like rice, sugar, beans and wheat flour. His dream is to one day become an international business man.

Salum will share this loan with his loan group "Tuwezeshane", which has a total of 15 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.

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.
