A loan of $2,150 helped a member to increase stock of charcoal.


Majani Ya Chai Group's story

Rehema M. is in her early twenties and is married with two children. She has been running a charcoal business since 2009. The business is open between 8am and 6pm and earns Rehema a small monthly profit.

This will be Rehema's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Rehema intends to use this loan to increase her stock of charcoal in order to meet rising demand.

Rehema will share this loan with her loan group, Majani ya Chai (meaning Tea Leaves), which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.
