Mohamed A., who is in his early thirties, is married with two children. He has had a charcoal business for three years now. He works from 2:00am to 6:00pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Mohamed's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He hopes for a loan to increase his charcoal stock. His dream is to sell charcoal at wholesale prices and to send his kids to higher education.

Mohamed will share this loan with his loan group, Mbogo, which has a total of 19 members. The members of the group will hold each other responsible in paying back the loans.

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.
