A loan of $1,275 helped a member to start a new location for fish sales.

Mabatini Group's story

Meet Ramadhani O. and the Mabitini Group. Ramadhani is 45 years old, divorced, and the father of five sons who are between two and 22 years old. His eldest three children go to school.

Ramadhani has been running a fish selling business for 15 years. He buys fish each morning and sells fresh fish and fried fish at two locations. He works every day from 8 am until late at night, and earns about $570 each month.

He has used two previous loans from Tujijenge Tanzania to expand his business and repaid them both successfully. Ramadhani will use this loan to open a third location for selling fish and to buy a small boat which will provide added products each day. Ramadhani will use any extra profits to cover household expenses and school fees for his children. He hopes to continue supporting his children through school, and eventually to buy a car.

Ramadhani is the President of his group and this will be his first Motisha loan. A Motisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. The 6 group members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

Ramadhani is wearing a blue shirt in the picture.
