A loan of $3,350 helped a member increasing stock of cloths, zippers and other tailor materials.

Mapinduzi Group's story

Happiness C. is in her mid-thirties and is married with four children. She has run a tailoring business since 1997. The business is open between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and earns her a good monthly profit.

This will be Happiness's tenth loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Her previous loans were used to change her business location and to buy cloth and lining, loans which she have successfully repaid. Happiness aims to use this loan to increase her stock of Vitaba (cloth), zippers, and other tailoring material. Happiness's dream is to one day earn enough profit to improve the premises of her business.

Happiness will share the loan with her loan group, Mapinduzi, which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.
