Yahaya, who is in his early twenties, is single with one small child. He has had a video libraly since 2000. He works from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm daily and makes a small monthly profit. This will be Yahaya's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which he hopes will help him renovate his business premises by painting inside the shop, polishing the shelves and putting in floor tiles. His dream is to one day expand his shop. He will share this loan with the 16 members of his loan group "Hawai" who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

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.
