Micheal is in his early 50s and is married with four children. One of his children goes to school and the rest are adults. Since 1980 Micheal has been a mechanic and has had a daladala (minivans that operate as busses) transportation business. He works from 8 in the morning until 7 at night daily to make a very good monthly profit. Micheal is a member of the loan group Pilika, which has 17 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

Micheal is requesting a loan to service his vehicle. This will be his second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Micheal successfully repaid his previous loan that he used to pay daladala insurance. His dream is to one day be able to buy another new daladala.

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.
