Juston is in his early 30s, married, and has one daughter who attends school. He has been using his loans to operate his photography business since 2000. He works from 6.00 AM to midnight if he is photographing a wedding or other ceremony. He earns a small monthly profit.

Juston is requesting his third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which he will use to buy small items such as long cables and a better camera stand and to replace any item which are spoiled. He used the previous loans to buy a new and up-to-date camera. He used the profit to pay school fees and to cover household expenses.

Juston will share this loan with his loan group "Mawela," which has nine 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.
