A loan of $3,275 helped a member pay rent for shop space.

Loyola Group's story

Getruda J. is married, in her mid twenties, and has a 5 year old son. For the past year Getruda has been buying clothes and then walking door to door to sell them. She does this between 10 am and 5 pm and it earns her a low monthly profit.

This will be Getruda's first loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Getruda aims to use this loan to pay initial rent on a property which she aims to use to open up a clothing shop. Getruda is really looking forward to having her own shop and not having to go door to door anymore. Getruda's dream is to be able to take her son to a good school.

Getruda will share this loan with her loan group Loyola, which totals 17 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In this group: Getruda, Yona, Rehema, Patricia, Moela, Hinju, Rose, Mwajuma, Felista, Secilia, Suraiya, Muru, Zainabu, Saidi, Abdul, Farifa, Almasi
