A loan of $1,825 helped a member to increase food inventory.


Waukae Group's story

H. A. is in his mid-twenties and single. He owns a food shop where he sells rice, beans, wheat and sugar. H. has been running his shop for the past four years, which is open daily between 7:30 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. The business earns H. a good monthly profit.

H. is requesting a Motisha loan as his second loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. A Motisha 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 has ended. His main loan was used to increase the stock needed for his business, a loan which he has been paying on time. H. aims to use the Motisha loan to buy more inventory for his shop as it runs out.

H. will share this loan with his loan group Waukae, eleven members of which have also requested a Motisha loan. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.
