A loan of $4,500 helped a member increase stock of used clothes.

Obama Group's story

Mohamed I. is in his early thirties and is married with three children. He has been running a second hand clothing business since 2006. The store is open daily between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm and earns Mohamed a low monthly profit.

This will be Mohamed's fifth loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Mohamed used his previous loans to increase his stock of clothes. These loans have now been successfully repaid. With his fifth loan, Mohamed aims to again increase his stock and help complete a house which he is currently building for himself.

Mohamed will share this loan with his loan group Obama, which totals 18 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.
