Mathew, who is in his late 30s, is married with one child who goes to school. He has been running a stationery business for three years now and works very hard. He works from 8am to 8pm daily and is able to make a good profit every month.

He is requesting his third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy more stationery stock and he has paid back all his loans successfully. With this loan, Mathew intends to buy stationery machines which he will use for printing and photocopying. His dream is to one day be able to own a big stationery firm.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Ushirika Mazizini", which totals 15 members, who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

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.
