A loan of $4,125 helped a member to increase his stock of water and to start selling juice.

Hefseba Group's story

Isaac M., age 37, is single with one daughter aged 6 years. Since 2010, he has had a business selling water wholesale. He works from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and he is able to earn a monthly profit of about $27.

This will be Isaac’s 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his previous loan to increase his stock of water and has paid back the loan successfully. He hopes for a new loan to again increase his stock of water and also to start selling juice.

Isaac will share this loan with his loan group called Hefseba, which totals sixteen members. The members of the group hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
