In this Group: Meshack, Fred, Francis, Victoria, Paulo, Emanuel, Oliva
Meshack Rameck, age 34, is married with one son of 11 years. He has a chicken business which he started in 2003. He works daily from 8am until 6pm and is able to earn a monthly profit of about $238.

This will be Meshack’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the first loan to increase on the stock of his chicken and has paid the loan back successfully. He now hopes for a new loan to expand his chicken business.

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. The organization aims to reach out to micro entrepreneurs and provide them with financial and social intermediation services because capital is one of the major barriers to development and success for micro-enterprise initiatives in Tanzania.

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.
