A loan of $4,625 helped a member to buy more used clothing for resale.

Wana Wa Ngurumo Group's story

Mariam K. is in her late thirties. She is married with one son, who is in school. She runs a business as a food vendor, and is also running a business selling second-hand clothes. She works from 6 am to 7 pm. She buys her clothes from the Kariakoo market in Dar es Salaam and sells them in Morogoro, a town about four hours' drive southwest of Dar es Salaam.

This will be Mariam's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her first loans, which she successfully repaid, to increase her food business and begin her clothing business. She wishes to use the current loan to buy more clothes, as well as to keep some in the bank, because her husband is sick.

Mariam will share this loan with the other members of Wana wa Ngurumo Group, sixteen in total. The members will hold each other accountable in repaying the loan. In the photo, Mariam can be seen on the far left in the first row.
