A loan of $4,575 helped a member to increase stock of goods.

Babati Group's story

Salma K. is in her late thirties and is married. She has 4 children. Salma has been selling food from her food stall since 2000. The stall is open between 6 am and 10 pm and earns Salma a good monthly profit.

This will be Salma's second loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Salma used her first loan to increase her stock of chapati and doughnuts. This loan has been successfully repaid. Salma will use her second loan to increase her stock in other products for her food stall, which she is currently missing. Salma's dream is to one day earn enough profit to build herself a new house.

Salma will share this loan with her loan group Babati, which totals 22 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.
