A loan of $4,375 helped a member purchase more charcoal.

Jitume Group's story

Hadija S., age 36, is married with 4 children, ages 16, 14, 12, and 3 years old. She has a small charcoal stall and clothes shop. She opened the business in 2008 and works long daily hours from 8 am until 8 pm. By selling charcoal and clothes she is able to earn a monthly profit of around $410.

This will be Hadija’s 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to expand the charcoal business and open the clothes business. She paid back her first loan successfully. She hopes to purchase additional stock for her charcoal business with this 2nd loan.
Hadija will share this loan with her group of 25 members, who keep each other accountable for paying back the loan. In the picture, Hadija is standing in the center and right of the picture, wearing a yellow t-shirt.
