He requests a 5th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to purchase more fruits, a plot on which he expects to build his own house, a TV, a radio, a sabufa (kind of music system), and paid household expenses. He has paid back all his loans successfully. He hopes for a loan to buy more fruit to resell. His dream is to one day be able to build his own nice house on the purchased plot.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Mshikamano" which totals 12 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.

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.
