A loan of $3,400 helped a member to purchase more clothing for sale in her shop.

Temeke Mikoroshini Group's story

Hawa Abraham age thirty-four, is married with three children, eighteen, twelve, and six years old. She has two businesses: a salon and a clothing shop, which she has operated for three years now. She works from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, and she is able to earn a monthly profit of about $111.

This will be Hawa’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the first loan to buy equipment for her salon. She hopes now for a loan to increase her stock in her clothing shop.

Hawa will share this loan with her loan group, Temeke Mikoroshini, which consists of eighteen members. The members of the group hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
