Abdllah M., who is in his early 50s, is married with five children. Some of the children are still in school. He has been selling second clothes and second hand shoes since 1982. He works from 8:30am to 6:30pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Abdllah's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to start selling second hand shoes and has paid back his loans successfully. He hopes for a loan to increase his stock of second hand clothes and shoes. His dream is to one day have a big place where he can sell his products.

Abdlla will share this loan with his loan group "Saba saba", which has a total of 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their 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. 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.
