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

A loan helped to buy more fabrics to resell to more people.

Muungano - Beach Group's story

Aisha, who is in her early 40s, is married with two grown-up children. One is attending university, and another one has finished advanced school level. For five years now, Aisha has been running a business selling fabrics (“vitenge” as known in Swahili). She works from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. per working day and is able to make a small profit per month. This will be Aisha's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She will use the loan to buy more fabrics to resell to more people. She dreams that one day she will be able to build a nice family house. Aisha will share this loan with her loan group "Muungano", which totals eight people. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
