A loan of $1,650 helped a member to increase her business and to pay school fees.

Tai Group's story

Saada Kasim, age 40, is married with seven children. She started her business in 2004. She sells clothes and weaving. She works from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily and she is able to earn a monthly profit of about $170

This will be Saada’s third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the first two to increase her stock by buying more clothes to sell and has paid the loans back successfully. She now hopes for a new loan to increase her business and to pay school fees for her children.

Saada will share this loan with subgroup A of the Tai group. The subgroup has six members who are selling food, have salon shops, or sell charcoal. These members hold each other accountable in paying back their loans. In the picture, Saada is second from the left in a pink dress.

In this group: Saada, Mariam, Benardetha, Mary, Zanda, Maua
