Sultan, who is in his early 30s, is single with one small child. He has been running a fruits and vegetables stall and has a small shop where he sells dry foods like sugar, wheat flour, baking flour, salt, beans, cooking oil, paraffin, match boxes and cigarettes for five years now. He works from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his 7th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to make bricks, to buy stock to replace the missing items in both of his businesses, and to cover household expenses. Sultan has paid back all of his loans successfully. He wants to use this loan to increase his retail shop's stock, to buy more fruits and vegetables and to make some bricks. His dream is to one day be able to build his own house.

He will share this loan with his loan group, "Mkwalia," which has a total of 10 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

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.
