A loan of $1,975 helped a member to buy more fish.

Gangamala Group's story

B. M., a married man in his early seventies with 10 children, runs a small business selling fried fish on the street in his home village. He has been doing this for the past four years, between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. daily, earning him a low monthly profit.

This will be B.'s first Motisha loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. A Mothisha 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. With this loan, B. will buy more fish at the markets in the morning and thereby increase his sales. B. will share the loan with his loan group Gangamala, which consists of 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In this group: Bakari, Mussa, Nassoro, Hamisi, Abdallah, Kassim, Iddi, Mwanaisha*, Miraji, Shabani
