Pandu H., who is in his early sixties, is married with four children and twelve grandchildren (in the picture, Pandu is the only man and is in front). He sells coffee and water outside his house. He has been in business for 25 years. He works from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.


This will be Pandu's fourth “motisha” loan fron Tujijenge Tanzania. A motisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania which allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. He has paid back his previous loans successfully. He hopes to obtain a loan to finish building his house in Zanzibar, an island off Tanzania.


Pandu will share this loan with his loan group, Mawimbi, which has a total of fourteen members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
