A loan of $3,300 helped a member to buy utensils, chairs, flour and rice for cafe.

Haki Sawa Group's story

Zuhura Abdallah, age 33, is single and has two children ages 8 and 15 years. She has operated a café business for 2 years now. She works from 7am to 4 pm daily and she is able to make a monthly profit of about $129.

This will be Zuhura second motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A Motisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania 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. She used the previous motisha loan to increase on her business stock and she has paid back the loan successfully. She hopes for a new motisha loan to buy more items for her café such as utensils, chairs, rice and flour. She hopes that her business continues to improve and grow, so that she can continue to help her family.

Zuhura will share this loan with her loan group, Haki Sawa, which has 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
