Hashim S., who is in his early 20s, is married with one small baby girl. He has been running a mobile-telephone business for three years now. He works from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Hashim's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to increase his supply of telephone spare parts, telephone housings and furniture. He has paid back all his loans successfully. He hopes for a loan to buy more equipment for mobile-telephone sales.

Hashim will share this loan with his loan group, "Quintilion," which has a total of 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In the picture, Hashim is in the back in a white-and-black striped shirt.

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.
