Shaibu K. (the only man pictured, in the back of the picture) is a married man in his late fifties. He and his wife have grownup children. To earn a living, for the past two years he has been running a local bar. On a daily basis, he works from midday to 10:00 pm. By doing so, he is able to make a nice monthly profit.

This is the third loan Shaibu has requested through Tujijenge Tanzania Ltd. He used the previous loans, which he successfully repaid, to increase his working capital. With this loan, he is hoping to increase his inventory. His dream is to someday secure an individual loan to purchase his own retail shop.

Shaibu would share this loan with his loan group, Nazareth, which has a total of 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

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.
