A loan of $2,350 helped a member to increase stock by buying more medicine.


Tanzanite Group's story

Patricia M., age 35, is married with three children aged 15, 11, and 6 years. She has had a pharmacy business for 10 years now. She works from 8am to 10pm daily and she is able to make monthly profits of about $262.

This will be Patricia’s second Motisha loan (Motisha loans are for clients with good payment histories) from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy more medicine and has paid it back successfully. She hopes for a loan to pay for the laborers who are building her small house.

Patricia will share this loan with her loan group Tanzanite, which totals six members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In the picture, Patricia is the first on the right front row.
