A loan of $1,925 helped a member to increase his stock of products.

Utamaduni Group's story

Rehani S. is in his late twenties and is unmarried. He has been running a phone accessory shop for the past two years, where he sells chargers, phone covers and batteries. Rehani's shop is open between 6 am and 10 pm daily, and earns Rehani a good monthly profit.

This will be Rehani's third loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Rehani used the previous loans to improve his store facilities, as well as increasing his stock of spare parts, protective cases, batteries and chargers. Both loans have been successfully repaid. Rehani aims to use this loan to stock up on products and thereby increase sales and the business. Rehani's dream is to be a successful business man one day.

Rehani will share this loan with his loan group, Utamaduni, which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.
