He is really happy with the loan, which has made him make better furniture. He even managed to sell most of his furniture and is able to take care of his family with the profit he got. He is doing very fine. He also used the profit to buy a TV set, sofa set, a radio, and a mattress.

He will use this loan to open a retail shop with items like rice, beans, sugar, wheat flour, baking flour, salt, Blue Band (margarine), and cooking oil.

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.
