Masali, in his early 30's, is married with one son who attends school. He has been running a mobile phone sales business for 5 years, working from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily. Masali is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Masali's 2nd motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A motisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to repay their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. Masali used the previous loan to increase his phone stock and has repaid it successfully. He hopes for a loan to buy more mobile phones and phone accessories to sell. His dream is to one day own a big shop where he will have a big stock of phones.

Masali will share this loan with his group "Green", consisting of 7 members, who will hold each other accountable in repaying 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.

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.
