Hamis, who is in his mid 40s, is married with nine children. Four of them are still going to school. He has been running a business selling fruit for three years now. He works from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his 5th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy a plot of land, more fruit, improve on the place where he sells his fruit, start selling bedsheets from door to door, and cover household expenses and school fees. He has paid back all his loans successfully. He now wants a loan to buy more bedsheets to resell. His dream is to one day be able to make his business bigger and to build his own house.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Forkland," which has a total of 15 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

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.
