Mkolemba Group's story

Meet Selina J. and the Mkolemba Group. Selina, aged 34, is married with six children. She has had a general store for two years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and is able to make a monthly profit of about $68.

This will be Selina’s fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to build her small house and has paid them back successfully. She now wants a loan to buy rice, sugar and flour for her store.

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