A loan of $2,675 helped a member to increase water stock by pumping more water in the water tanks.

Goodwork Group's story

Mambo from Tanzania!

Paulina N., age 37, is married with three children ages, 13,10 and 7 years. She also cares for her 18 year old younger sister who is studying in secondary school. Paulina sells water to big trucks and home users and also has had a Gange Duka (swahili meaning selling sugar, salt, beans, wheat flour, rice and vegetable and fruits in the same shop) for two years now. She works from 8am to 8pm and she is able to make a monthly profit of about $286.

This will be Paulina’s 3rd Motisha loan, the loan which is given to clients who are good payers, from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy a water tank of 2000lts and to increase the stock of the Genge Duka. She has paid back the loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to increase the water stock.

Paulina will share this loan with her loan group Goodwoork, which totals 19 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
