Benito S. is in his late forties and is married with one daughter. One year ago, Benito started up his own poultry business. The business runs from 8 am to 6 pm daily and earns Benito a stable monthly profit.

This will be Benito's second Motisha loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. A Motisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. Benito's previous loans were used to buy more chicks and medicine, a loan which he has successfully repaid. The demand for Benito's chickens is growing, and Benito hopes for another loan to help finance more chicks and meet this demand.

Benito will share this loan with his loan group Iringa, which totals 12 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Benito is seen holding a bottle in his hand, first on the left.

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.
