In this Group: Muhibu, Rehema, Bellow, Saidi, James
Muhibu, who is a single man in his mid-30s, has two children who are in school.

For six years now, Muhibu has had a business selling shoes for men, women and children. He normally runs his shop from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his 17th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Muhibu paid back his previous loans fully, and he purchased more business stocks, especially ladies' shoes, for his shop. With his business profit, he covered school fees, family food and medical expenses. Muhibu also bought a plot of land.

With this loan, he will buy new shoes to resell in his shop. Muhibu hopes to build a house.

He will share this loan with his loan group, "Chimbuko," which totals five members who 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.
