A loan of $3,125 helped a member increase the inventory of soda to sell.


Patemo Group's story

Nassoro M. is in his early forties and is married with three children. Every day he runs a school bus service for children, and while he waits during the day, he runs a store from which he sells drinks and snacks. Nassoro has been running the business between 04:00 am and 11:00 pm daily since 2006, and it earns Nassoro a low monthly profit.

This will be Nassoro's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Nassoro used his first loan to increase his stock of juices and sodas. This loan has since been successfully repaid. With his second loan, Nassoro aims to once again increase his stocks of goods, primarily juice and soda.

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