Abraham N. is in his early thirties and is married with three children. Abraham runs a small phone accessory and spare parts store and has been doing that since 2007. The shop is open between 7:30 am and 9:00 pm and earns Abraham a low monthly profit.

This will be Abraham's 8th loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Abraham used his previous loans to increase his stock of different spare parts, as well as improve the condition of his stall. These loans have all been successfully repaid. With his 8th loan, Abraham aims to invest in some used phones and beginning selling them as well. Abraham's dream is to one day own a big mobile phone store.

Abraham will share this loan with his loan group Sugura, which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Abraham can be seen 2nd from left in the first row, wearing a white shirt.

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.
