A loan of $2,600 helped a member to increase capital for pool-table manufacturing business.

Muheza Group's story

R. B. is in his late thirties. He is married and has four children. Two years ago, R. began making pool tables. He also buys and sells pool tables that are already made. He operates his business from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily. His business earns him a good monthly profit.

This will be R.'s third 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. R.'s previous loans, which he has since repaid, were used to increase his inventory of materials to be used for building the pool tables. He plans to use this loan to increase his business capital.

R. will share this loan with his loan group, Muheza, which totals 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, R. is first on the right, standing in the back row.

In this group: Robert, Juliana*, Denisy, Lydia, Carlos E.*, Haruna, Louenes, Omary, Mary, Rose
