A loan of $3,900 helped a member to increase on business.


Blue Group's story

Jamila D., age 34, is single with three children ages 14, 12 and 3years. She has a table top (fruits and vegetable) and grocery (cold drinks)business, which she started 3 years ago. She works daily from 7am until 11pm. She is able to earn a monthly profit of around $188.

This will be Jamila’s 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase stock on the table top and started selling cold drinks and has paid back the loan successfully. She hopes for a new loan to still increase on both businesses. Jamila will share this loan with her loan group Blue, which totals 17 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable in paying back their loans. In the picture, Jamila is second from right at the back in white..
