Tupendane C Group's story

Twaha A., age 35, is married with two children aged 15 and 5. He has operated a tailoring business for eight years now. He works from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and he is able to make a monthly profit of about $68.

This will be Twaha’s first Motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania (a Motisha loan is a loan product offered by Tujijenge 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). He hopes for a loan to buy a bigger roll of mosquito netting and to buy more T-shirts for sewing and selling.

Twaha will share this loan with his loan group called Tupendane C, which has six members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
