Sheraton Group's story
Pili, who is in her late 20s, is single, with one son who is at school. She has been running a grocery store for four months. She works from 5pm to midnight daily and is able to make a good monthly profit. This will be Pili's 8th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to sell clothes and food, and now she is running a grocery store. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees, bought a plot of land and covered household expenses. She will use this loan to buy beers, sodas, spirits, juice, wine and water for the grocery. She dreams of making her business big. Pili will share this loan with her loan group "Sheraton," which has two members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
