Abubakari, who is in his early thirties, is married with three children. Two of them go to school and one is still young. Abubakari has had a business of selling spare parts for motorcycles and motorbikes since 2005. He works from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be Abubakari's fifteenth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to rent a shop in which to sell his spare parts, buy a motorcycle, TV set and radio, restock the missing items in his shop, start building his house, and pay his household expenses. He has paid back all his loans successfully. Abubakari wants a loan to buy more motorbike and motorcycle spare parts to resell. His dream is to one day be able to finish building his house.

Abubakari will share this loan with his loan group "Salasala" that has a total of fifteen members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
