A loan of $4,100 helped a member increase stock of clothes and traditional garments.


Mshikamano Group's story

Chiku I. is in her early thirties and is married with three children. Chiku began with selling water from door to door, but three years ago she began selling childrens clothes and traditional garments (Vitenge) on her door to door routes. Chiku does this from 09:00 am to 04:00 pm and earns Chiku a low monthly profit.

This will be Chiku's fourth loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Chiku used her previous loans to increase her stock of clothes and Vitenges. These loans have since been successfully repaid. Chiku aims to once again increase her stock of clothes to get ready for the busy christmas period which is coming up. Chiku's dream is to one day open up a shop where she can sell food and clothes.

Chiku will take this loan with her loan group Mshikamano, which totals 17 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.

In the picture, Chiku can be seen as the person on the far left, wearing brown and a brown head cover.

In this group: Chiku , Christina, Josephine , Jamila , Maimuna, Erick, Bashisha, Fransisca, Jamila , Moza, Agrey, Jafari, Hadija, Veronika, Hanji, Njia, Juma
