In this Group: Abdalah, Juma, Kenethy, Iddi, Albert, Abdu, Athma, Athumani, Mayasa, Suleiman, Mrisho, Adam, Pazi, Haji
Abdahal is a micro entrepreneur who has been running a café selling juices, water, milk, and food for six years. He is a married man in his late 30s with four children ( two boys and two girls); three are in school while one is finished with school. He works from 6am to 6pm daily, and is able to earn a good profit each month.

This will be his fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which have been repaid, he managed to increase missing cafe items like water. With the profit, he covered household expenses and started building a house. He will use this loan to buy more cafe water to sell. He dreams one day to be able to buy a big fridge and start selling ice cream.

He will share this loan with his loan group 'IMARIKA', which totals 14 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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. The organization aims to reach out to micro entrepreneurs and provide them with financial and social intermediation services because capital is one of the major barriers to development and success for micro-enterprise initiatives in Tanzania.

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.
