A loan of $3,450 helped a member to increase his stock.

Challenge Group's story

Samson M. is in his early thirties and married, with one child. Samson has been running a secondhand clothing business for the past ten years. He buys his clothes in the market area of Kariakoo and sells them door-to-door in Karume. He works from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and earns a low monthly profit.

This will be Samson's second loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his first loan to increase his stock of clothes and has now successfully repaid this loan. With his second loan, Samson again hopes to refill his stock and ensure that he has enough goods to meet demand for his products. Samson's dream is to one day open his own shop from which he can sell his clothes.

Samson will share this loan with his loan group Challenge, which consists of 15 members, who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans. In the photo, Samson can be seen in the back row in a striped shirt.
