Abdulmagidi N., age 21 is single. He has a welding business which he started in 2008, at Maji Matitu. He works daily from 7am until 6.30pm. Abdulmagidi is able to earn a monthly profit of around $154.

This will be Abdulmagid’s third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy four welding machines which were stolen on the same day. Adbulmagid (leave alone the disaster) has repaid the loans successfully. He hopes for a third loan to buy a new welding machine.
Abdulmagid will share this loan with his loan group, Mti Pesa (Kiswahili, a tree is money) which totals 19 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable for paying back their loans. In the picture, Abdulmagid is leaning on the table in a black t-shirt.

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.
