A loan of $2,950 helped a member to start building his own store.

Forkland Group's story

Bartazar K. is in his early 20s and is single. Bartazar runs a general store. The store is open between 6am and 10pm and earns him a good monthly profit.

This will be Bartazar's fifth loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his previous loans to buy a motorcycle and open another general store nearby. These loans were all successfully repaid. With this loan, he aims to start building his own store and stop renting.

Bartazar's dream is to travel overseas and buy clothes and shoes for a good sale.

Bartazar will share this loan with his loan group Forkland, which totals 19 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.
