Ismail, who in his late twenties, is married and has two children -- a boy and a girl. He has been running a telephone accessories business for four years now. He works from 7 am to 8 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Ismail's 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to restock the out of stock items and has paid back all his loans successfully. He used the profit to pay school fees and household expenses. He will use this loan to buy more telephone accessories for making more sales. He dreams of expanding his business by opening another shop to sell the same types of items.

Ismail will share this loan with his loan group "KILIMANJARO" with eleven 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.
