A loan of $2,225 helped a member to buy another water tank.


Makoka Group's story

Peragia M. is in her early thirties and is married with two children. Peragia opened her own charcoal and water business six months ago. The business is open between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. and earns Peragia a low monthly profit. This will be Peragia's first motisha loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. A motisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. Peragia aims to use this loan to buy a new water tank where she will store her water. Peragia will share this loan with her loan group Makoko, which totals 14 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans. In the picture, Peragia can be seen wearing white, first on the right by the tree.

In this group: Peragia, Zuhura, Adrs, Mwanaisha, Tausi, Fatuma, Joyce, Molicia, Teresia, Pili*, Augusta, Cakorina, Aly, Alpa*
