Hekima Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy tailoring materials and to replenish her inventory of soft drinks.
Hekima Group's story
Mariam, who is in her late 30s, is single. She has been managing two businesses: a tailoring business for three years and soft drinks since 2006. She works from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and is able to make a very good profit. From Tujijenge Tanzania, this will be her second loan request, which she will use to buy tailoring materials and replenish her soft drinks. With the previous loan, which she has paid back successfully, she managed to buy one tailoring machine and more materials. Mariam used her profit to finish building her house and covered part of her home expenses. She dreams of improving much on her businesses. She will share this loan with her loan group "HEKIMA," which consist of two members. The members of the group hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
