* not pictured
SHAMSUDINI, who is in his early 30s, is married with three children (two girls and a boy). Two of his children are in school and the last one is still young. For a period of nine years now, he has been running a general store business selling different kinds of consumables as well as durable items. He is doing fine with his activity and his family as well. He works from 6 AM to 9 PM daily and is able to earn a good profit per month.

This will be his 6th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to purchase more business stock, buy cupboards, finish his house, and pay school fees and household expenses, and he has paid back all his loans successfully. He will use this loan to increase his business stock to meet the increased client demand. His dream is to one day be able to have a wholesale business.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Mission," which totals 10 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. 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.
