A loan of $3,275 helped a member to increase stock and to pay rent for the pharmacy shop.

Mt Magorot Group's story

Koku D., age 27, is single. She has had a pharmacy business since 2007. She works from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and is able to earn a monthly profit of about $45.

This will be Koku’s 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy more medicines for the pharmacy and has paid back the loan successfully. She hopes for a new loan to improve on her stock and to pay for the shop rent.

Koku will share this loan with her loan group Mt Magorot, which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
