Mt Usambala Group's story
Sophia, who is in her mid forties, is married and has three children. Two of them go to school and one is grown up. She has been running two small businesses, selling sarongs and local chicken for six years now. She works from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (just for 4 hours only) and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She wants to use the loan for buying more sarongs and local chicken. Her dream is to one day be able to become an international businesswoman. She will share this loan with her loan group, "Mt Usambara", which has a total of fifteen members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.
