A loan of $2,525 helped a member buy more chicks.

Iringa Group's story

Benito S. is in his late forties and is married with one daughter. One year ago, Benito started up his own poultry business. The business runs from 8 am to 6 pm daily and earns Benito a stable monthly profit.

This will be Benito's second Motisha 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. Benito's previous loans were used to buy more chicks and medicine, a loan which he has successfully repaid. The demand for Benito's chickens is growing, and Benito hopes for another loan to help finance more chicks and meet this demand.

Benito will share this loan with his loan group Iringa, which totals 12 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.
