Ushirikiano Kiburugwa Group
In this Group: Moshi, Mathias
Moshi, who is in her mid 30s, is married with five children; four of them are still at school and the fifth one is still small. She has been running a business selling CDs and DVDs and providing entertainment like showing football matches. She has been in this business for three years now. She works from 9.00 am to mid-night daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Moshi's 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more and up-to-date CDs and DVDs and has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees, covered household expenses and has started building her house. She is really happy with the loan and appreciates everybody who has supported her group. She will use this loan to buy more CDs and DVDs to sell and to show - the ones she shows are mostly football matches. She dreams of finishing her house.

Moshi will share this loan with her group, Ushirikiano Kiburugwa, which has only two 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.
