R. B. is in his late thirties. He is married and has four children. Two years ago, R. began making pool tables. He also buys and sells pool tables that are already made. He operates his business from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily. His business earns him a good monthly profit.

This will be R.'s third 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. R.'s previous loans, which he has since repaid, were used to increase his inventory of materials to be used for building the pool tables. He plans to use this loan to increase his business capital.

R. will share this loan with his loan group, Muheza, which totals 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, R. is first on the right, standing in the back 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.

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.
