but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more items to sell to her customers.

Karoti Group's story

Mary, who is in her late thirties, is married and the mother of three children, two boys and one girl. All of her children attend school, while she earns a living running a general store where she sells a wide range of items. She has been in business since 2007 and works from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily to make a fair monthly profit. She is requesting her eighth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy chairs for her store, additional items to sell to her customers and to meet household expenses. She has repaid all of these loans successfully and is requesting a new loan to buy more items to sell to her customers. Her dream is to one day be able to open a big hardware business. She will share this loan with her group, which is called "Karoti" and has 11 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
