Pilika Pilika Group's story
Patric, who is in his early 30s, is married with two children. One of his children goes to school and the other one is still small. He has been running a welding business where he makes metal things like gates, burglar proofs and beds. He also has a hardware shop. He has been in this business for eight years now. He works from 8am to 5pm daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit. This will be his third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy a pipe and an advanced welding machine. He has paid back all his loans successfully. He used the profits to pay for school fees and cover household expenses. He will use this loan to buy welding pipes, hardware, and to make metal beds. He dreams of making his hardware shop big. Patric will share this loan with his loan group "Pilika", and the three members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
