Lugano Group's story

Ashery S. is in his early 40s and is married with four children. He has been running a cobbler business for five years. The shop is open between 6:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. and earns Ashery a good monthly profit.

This will be Ashery's first loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. With this loan, Ashery aims to buy a sewing machine so that he can expand his cobbler business in order to repair shoes as well.

Ashery will share this loan with his loan group Lugano, which totals 16 members. The members of the group will hold each other responsible for repaying the loans.
