Express Group's story

Happy A., in her late twenties, is married with two daughters. For the past two years, she has sold cosmetics (lotions) and charcoal. She works from 4pm to 5pm daily and is able to make a monthly profit of about $53. This will be Happy's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to increase her business and pay school fees for her children, and has paid those loans back successfully. She hopes to use the current loan to increase her cosmetics and charcoal inventory. She dreams of one day looking for land on which to build a house. Happy will share this loan with her loan group, Express, which totals 17 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
