Mohamed I. is in his early thirties and is married with three children. He has been running a second hand clothing business since 2006. The store is open daily between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm and earns Mohamed a low monthly profit.

This will be Mohamed's fifth loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Mohamed used his previous loans to increase his stock of clothes. These loans have now been successfully repaid. With his fifth loan, Mohamed aims to again increase his stock and help complete a house which he is currently building for himself.

Mohamed will share this loan with his loan group Obama, which totals 18 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Mohamed can be seen second from right, front 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.
