Hamisi C., age 33, is married with four children, ages 13, 11, 5 and 2 years old. He has had a brick business in three different places since 1997. He works from 6 am to 7 pm daily and he is able to earn a monthly profit of about $294.

This will be Hamisi’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the first loan to open a bricks shop in Chanika. He hopes for a loan to increase good stock in all three locations.

Hamisi will share this loan with his group, Tomato, which totals 15 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable in paying back the loan. In the picture, Hamisi is first from the right in the last row.

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.
