Christian, who is in his early sixties, is married with five children, one of whom is still at university. He has been selling fried fish for five years now. He works from 7.00 am to 2.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to buy more buckets of fish, took care of his family (food and hospital) and has paid back all his loans successfully. He wants a loan to buy still more buckets of fish to sell. His dream is to one day become an international business man.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Actable The Best" which has a total of twenty-one 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.
