A loan of $4,075 helped a member increase stock of goods.


Tujikwamue Kiburugwa Group's story

Habiba S. is in her early forties and is married with two children. Habiba has been running a general store and a cosmetics shop since 2004. The grocery store is open daily between 6 am and 9 pm and earns Habiba a good monthly profit. This will be Habiba's 10th loan with Tujijenge Tanzanania. The earlier loans were used for expanding the business as well as increasing her stock. All of these loans have since been repaid. With her 10th loan, Habiba once again aims to increase her stock of goods, both for the grocery store as well as the cosmetics shop. Habiba's dream is to one day own several grocery stores around the city. Habiba will share this loan with her loan group Tujikwamue Kiburugwa, which totals 19 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans. In the picture, Habiba can be seen in the back row, to the far left.

In this group: Habiba, Sikujua, Asha, Salma, Hadija, Kuruthum, Maua, Zawadi, Sarar, Tatu, Ashura, Swaum, Sada, Mwanaisha, Nuru, Halima, Mariam, Mwanaisha, Jellah
