Said M. is in his early thirties and is married with one son. Over the past 5 years he has been running a tailoring business to support himself and his family. The shop is open between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm and earns Said a low monthly profit.

This will be Said's first loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Said's aim is to use the loan to increase his stock in garments in order to ensure a smooth production product, so that customers products are ready on time. Said's dream is to one day open a workplace where he can teach tailoring to other people.

Said will share this loan with his loan group Mabibu Freedom, which totals 16 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Said can be seen second from left 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. 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.
