Mtu-Mbeyi Group's story

Selemani S., 23, is married and an auctioneer in the Ilala market just some few kilometers from the city centre. For seven years he has worked from 5am to 10am daily. He is able to make a monthly profit of about $375.

This will be Selemani’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to increase his business stock and he has paid back the loan successfully. He hopes for a new loan to increase his stock even more. His dreams is to open a retail shop and sell things like wheat flour, sugar, flour, cooking oil, salt and other edibles. S. will share this loan with his loan group Mtu-Mbei which totals 16 members. Members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
