* not pictured
Mola R. is in his early forties and is married with six children. He owns and runs a quarrying business, selling his output at his shop which he has operated for eight years. The business is open between 6 a.m. and 12 noon and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and makes an acceptable monthly profit.

This will be Mola’s 2nd Motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania (a Motisha loan is a loan product offered by Tujijenge that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended). He used his previous loan, a loan which he has successfully repaid, to increase his stock of dynamite, which he uses to separate the big rocks. He wishes to use this loan to support his wife’s food shop. His dream is to help the poor.

Mola will share this loan with his loan group, Pwani, which totals eleven members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for the repayment of their loans.

In the photo, Mola can be seen in the middle of the back row.

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. The organization aims to reach out to micro entrepreneurs and provide them with financial and social intermediation services because capital is one of the major barriers to development and success for micro-enterprise initiatives in Tanzania.

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.
