In this Group: Robert, Mwanaidi, Anjela, Onbomo, Amani, Samuel, Wolfgan, Odia, Godson
Robert J. is in his early thirties and is married with two children. Robert has been a butcher since 2007. The butcher shop is open between 11:30 am and 8:30 pm and earns Robert a good monthly profit.

This will be Robert's second Motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A Mothisha 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. With his previous loan, Robert increased his stock of meat and enjoyed a healthy level of capital in the business. With his second loan, Robert aims to open a new location in another part of the city.

Robert will share this loan with his loan group Changamkeni, which totals 9 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Robert can be seen wearing white and blue on the far right in the front 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.
