SONG'ORA, who is in his early 30s, is married with three children who are still going to school. He has been having two projects: selling fish and operating a motorcycle transportation business. He has been in his business for five years now. He works from 7 am to 6 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be SONG'ORA's 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to start selling fish and to service his motorcycle so that it will be in good condition to make more trips. He has managed to pay back all his loans successfully. He used his profit to pay school fees, to build his house, and to cover household expenses.

He will use this loan to buy another motorcycle for his transportation business. He dreams of building a house for renting.

SONG'ORA will share this loan with his loan group "HEKIMA GROUP MUSOMA" which has five 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.
