A loan of $1,900 helped a member to increase the stock of items he has to sell his customers.

Tuwezeshane Group's story

Bakari M. is 34, married and has three children ages 8, 5 and 2. He runs a small business selling vegetables and fruits which he opened 10 years ago. He works from 5 am to 8 pm daily and is able to make monthly profit of about $207

This will be Bakari’s fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his previous loans to build a small house and increase the stock of items he has to sell. He succeeded in repaying his previous loans, and plans to use the new one to continue to expand his business.

Bakari will share this loan with the other six members of his group, which is called Tuwezeshane. The members of the group hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.

In this group: Bakari, Mare, Amina, Wahipaeli, Fatuma, Prisca, Mwajuma
