Maulid who is in his mid thirties is married with two children who are still going to school. He has been running a business of selling cold drinks and dry food for five years now. He works from 6am to 10pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Maulid's seventh loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to restock the out-of-stock items in his shop and has paid back all his loans successfully. He used his profits to buy a bed, a TV set and a radio; and paid school fees and met his household expenses. He is very happy with the loan. He will use this loan to buy more soda, juice, water, wheat flour, baking flour, beans, sugar, cooking oil and rice to resell. His dream is to one day be able to own a wholesale shop for his items.

Maulid will share this loan with his loan group, Mwale, which has 12 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back 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.
