In this Group: Shedrack, Restituta, Edwin, Joktan, Mathias, Veronika, Sevelina, Elizabeth, Clement
Shedrack, who is in his mid-30s, is married and has two children. One child is in school, while the other is still a baby. For eight years now, Shedrack has been managing his family by running a business selling bed sheets. He works from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM per working day and is able to receive a good monthly profit.

This will be his tenth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which he has paid back in full, he bought stocks of bed sheets. Shedrack’s profit was used to cover school fees and household expenses, including home bed sheets, sofas, a fridge, and a TV. He is so happy with your financial support, which helps him to improve his life. Shedrack will use this loan to buy bed sheets to resell to more people. He dreams of owning a big plot of land.

Shedrack will share this loan with his loan group "TRUST," which totals nine members. The members of the group 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.
