A loan of $2,875 helped a member to open a salon.


Mwale Group's story

Husna S. is in her mid 20s and has a five-year-old daughter. Husna has been running a tabletop fruits and vegetables business since 2008. The shop is open between 5:00 am and 5:00 pm daily and earns Husna a low monthly profit.

This will be Husna's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Husna used her first loan to increase her business and to start supplying other people with fruits and vegetables. Husna has since successfully repaid that loan. With her second loan, Husna aims to open a salon in Tabata. Her dream is to open a clothing shop.

Husna will share this loan with her loan group Mwale, which has 16 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.
