This will be his first motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, and he wants to use it for buying more maize grains, grinding them and selling flour. A motisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania, given in the middle of the main loan, that motivates borrowers with good credit ratings who pay back their loans smoothly to receive half the amount of the existing loan before their original loan term has ended.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Kampala One," which has 10 members who 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.

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.
