In this Group: Said, Muhidini, Scolastica, Abdurahman, Abdalah, Obed, Antipas, Kamilius, Salumu, Charles, David
Said, who is in his early 40s, is married with three children who go to school. He has run a grocery and a welding business for four years. He works on welding from 7:00 a.m. TO 5:00 p.m. daily and employs a man in his grocery business. Said is able to generate a good monthly profit.

This will be Said's tenth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania Ltd. He used previous loans to buy a plot of land on which to build a house; to buy welding machines; and to cover household expenses and school fees. Said has successfully paid back all of his loans.

Said now hopes for a loan to increase his grocery inventory. His dream is to one day be able to own a hardware business. He will share this loan with his loan group, "Mbayuwayu Group," which totals eleven members. The members of the group will hold one another 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.
