John, who is in his early 30s, is single with one daughter who goes to school. He has been selling different items such as fruits, vegetables, radios, telephone covers, and door handles for two years now. He works from 8.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be John's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to restock some needed items in his business, covered household expenses and school fees, and paid back his loan successfully. He wants a loan to buy more fruits, vegetables, radios, telephone covers, and door handles. His dream is to one day be able to build his own house.

John will share this loan with his loan group, Manzese A, which has 18 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.
