In this Group: Abeli, Shibani, Muhamed, Hamis
Abeli, age 28, is married with 3 children (ages 5, 4, and 1). He is a very busy man running 3 businesses. He works daily from 10am to 11pm and sells chips, does masonry work, and also runs a pool table business. He started these businesses 2 years ago and makes a total monthly profit of about $170 from his work.

In the past, Abeli took 2 loans from Tujijenge Tanzania to purchase stock for his businesses. He also used the loans to support his wife's business. He now hopes for a new loan to buy another pool table and to also buy more chips. He will share this loan with his subgroup whose members own small general stores.

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.
