Dotto Mohamed, age 30, is married with one daughter 10 years of age. She has had a medical store since 2006 and works daily from 8am until 8pm. She is able to earn a monthly profit of around $96.

This will be Dotto’s 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her stock by buying more medicine and has paid back successfully. She hopes for a loan to still increase on her stock of medicine.

Dotto will share this loan with her loan group, Makabe, which totals 21 members. The members of the group help each other in paying back the loan. In the picture, Dotto is 4th from the right in the front row behind the desk, wearing white with a white headscarf.

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.

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.
