Samwel, who is in his early 30s, is married and has one child who is still young. Samwel has been running a genge-duka, selling fruits, vegetables, sugar, beans, salt, flour and the like, in the same shop, for two years now. He works from 7.00 a.m. to 8.30 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Samwel's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to buy fruits, vegetables and drinks, like soda, water and juice, and he has paid back his loan successfully. He will use this new loan to buy a water container and to buy items his store is now lacking, like beans, wheat flour, mangoes and pineapples. He dreams of owning a wholesale shop.

Samwel will share this loan with his loan group, Classic, which is comprised of 10 members, including Samwel. They 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.
