A loan of $1,950 helped a member increasing Linen stock.

Bustani One Group's story

Lucy M. is in her late thirties and is married. She has been running a her tailoring business since 1999. Lucy specialises in women's suits, mainly made of linen. The business is open daily between 9 am and 7 pm and earns a good monthly profit.

This will be Lucy's 2nd Motisha loan from 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. Lucy used her first loan to increase her stock of linen in order to meet rising demand for her suits. Lucy aims to use her second Motisha loan to once again increase her linen stock. Lucy's dream is to be able to go for further studies, as well as expanding the business by receiving new orders from Arusha and Morogoro.

Lucy will share this loan with her loan group, Bustani One, which totals 11 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.
