Kea, who is in his early 40s, is married and lives with his wife and baby. He has been running a business selling phone equipment for one year now. He works from 9 am to 6 pm daily, and he is able to make a good monthly profit.

He is requesting his third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to open the place of business, to take phone equipment to an auction to resell, and to cover household expenses. He has repaid all of his loans successfully. He wants a new loan to add more phone equipment, such as batteries and housing, to resell. His dream is to one day be able to buy a plot of land on which he expects to build his family a house.

He will share this loan with his loan group, "Rufiji," which totals 25 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying 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.
