A loan helped to buy nets and a new boat for fishing so his business can grow.


Samwel's story

Samwel is 49 years old, a married father, and blessed with seven children, who are still in school. He is a fisherman and catches fish such as tilapia, Nile perch and sardines. He has been in this business for 18 years. He works from 5:00 in the morning 9:00 at night daily and he earns a profit.

This will be Samwel's 3rd loan request to Tujijenge Tanzania. He purchased fishing items with his previous loan. He earned a profit, which he used to pay school fees and household expenses and to reinvest in his business. He managed to repay his loan.

He is applying for this loan to buy nets and a new boat so his business can grow. His dream is to become a big businessman in the near future.

Samwel will be responsible for paying back the loan.
