Mohamed I. is in his late twenties and single. He has been a tailor for ten years. Working from 8am to 9pm daily, he is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Mohamed's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzani. He used the previous loans to buy material and other items for his tailoring business and paid back the loans successfully. He hopes to use this loan to buy lining material, which he will use for dresses and tops. His dream is to one day buy a plot.

Mohamed will share this loan with his loan group "Nike Air". The group has 16 members, who hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In the picture, Mohamed is the first on the right in the front.

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.
