Ramadhani, who is in his early 40s, is married with five children who go to school. He has had a food vending business for 2 years now. He works from 4am to 6pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be his 3rd Motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A Motisha 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. He used the previous loans to start selling chips and to pay school fees and household expenses, and he has paid back all his loans successfully. He hopes for a loan to buy more food stock for the food cafe. His dream is to be able to build his own house one day.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Mkaratusi" which has a total of 10 members, and 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.
