Pilika Group's story
Micheal is in his early 50s and is married with four children. One of his children goes to school and the rest are adults. Since 1980 Micheal has been a mechanic and has had a daladala (minivans that operate as busses) transportation business. He works from 8 in the morning until 7 at night daily to make a very good monthly profit. Micheal is a member of the loan group Pilika, which has 17 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans. Micheal is requesting a loan to service his vehicle. This will be his second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Micheal successfully repaid his previous loan that he used to pay daladala insurance. His dream is to one day be able to buy another new daladala.
