A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy land to one day build a house.


White Group's story

Matthew A. is in his mid-forties and is married with two children, aged 12 and 9. Matthew operates a small food shop that he has been running for 10 years. The shop is open daily between 12 am and 11pm and he is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Matthew’s 3rd 'Motisha' loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A 'Mothisha' 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 would have ended. He used his previous two loans on increasing shop inventory, and both have been successfully repaid. He aims to use his third loan on buying more land. Matthew’s dream is to one day build a house for himself on this new land.

Matthew will share this loan with his loan group, White, which has 6 members. The members of the group will hold each other responsible for repaying the loans.
