A loan of $2,650 helped a member to start selling mobile phones.

Sungura Group's story

Abraham N. is in his early thirties and is married with three children. Abraham runs a small phone accessory and spare parts store and has been doing that since 2007. The shop is open between 7:30 am and 9:00 pm and earns Abraham a low monthly profit.

This will be Abraham's 8th loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Abraham used his previous loans to increase his stock of different spare parts, as well as improve the condition of his stall. These loans have all been successfully repaid. With his 8th loan, Abraham aims to invest in some used phones and beginning selling them as well. Abraham's dream is to one day own a big mobile phone store.

Abraham will share this loan with his loan group Sugura, which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.
