In this Group: Lucas, Justina, Lucia, Mwita, Ester, Tumaini, Joseph, Maria, Ibrahim, Marwa, Paulo
LUCAS is in his late 30s and is married with four children, who are still going to school. He has been running a fruits and vegetables business for five years now. He works from 07am to 08pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be LUCAS's 2nd loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to buy the missing fruits and vegetables and has paid back the entire previous loan successfully. He managed to use his business profit to pay school fees and household expenses. LUCAS will use this loan to restock the out of stock fruits and vegetables. Lucas is doing fine with his genge (grocery hut). He dreams that one day he will be able to own a wholesale business.

LUCAS will share this loan with his loan group "MAGOLE 'B'" which is comprised of 11 members. The members of this group 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.
