In this Group: Yohana, Lista, Mele, Lister, Shabani, Richard, Moses, Ana, Twaiba, Moses, Josephat
Yohana is in his early 50s, married, and has seven children, three of whom attend school. For six years, he has been running a butcher shop. He works from 6 AM to 7 PM daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

Yohana is requesting his second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which he will use to increase stock of meat to his butcher business. He used the previous loan to increase his meat inventory, buy a sofa set, cover household expenses, and pay school fees. His dream is to one day be able to build a nice house and provide better education to his children.

Yohana will share this loan with his loan group Limousine, which totals 11 members who 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.
