* not pictured
Daudi, who is in his early 50s, is married with six children, three of whom are adults and three of whom still go to school. He has been running a food shop for about two years now. He works from 6 am to 9 pm daily and he is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to buy more stock of sugar, rice and different kind of soaps and he has paid back his loan successfully. He hopes for a new loan to buy iron sheets to build a food shop room. His dream is to build a new good house, buy a farm and start a new chicken business.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Mt Usambara", which consists of 10 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
