Amedius is in his late twenties and is married. He has been selling food items like rice, wheat and maize flour, beans, sugar, and salt for about 2.5 years now. He is truly hardworking. He works from 6am to 10pm and is able to make a really good monthly profit.

This will be his third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to buy more food items for his business, like beans, a sack of rice, and wheat flour. He has paid back his previous loans successfully. He wants a loan to add more rice, some kilos of beans, wheat flour, maize flour, and different kinds of soaps to his inventory. His dream is to be a big trader.

He will share this loan with his loan group, Kwame Nkuruma, which has 12 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
