He is currently aged in his late 30s. Mustafa is married and taking care of his four children who are enrolled to school. For six years now, he has been running a genge duka retail shop, where he sells cooking oil, soaps, matchboxes, airtime, rice, beans and fruits and vegetables. He opens his shop from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. per working day and is able to make a fair monthly profit.
This is his second loan request from Kiva partner Tujijenge Tanzania. He will use it to replenish out-of-stock stock products in his genge duka. Mustafa used his previous loan to restock his business for daily demand and has paid back the loan successfully. He used the business profit to cover his household and school expenses. In the coming days, Mustafa dreams of expanding his business more to earn a high return.
He will share this loan with his loan group, Makoka, which has two members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
