A loan of $3,600 helped a member to buy fabric and used clothing.

Kimgugi Group's story

Sara K. is in her early twenties and is single with a baby son. For the past year, Sara has a small fabric and clothing business and she walks door to door selling fabric and young women’s clothing. Sara works daily from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm and earns a low monthly profit.

This will be Sara’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Sara successfully repaid her first loan that was used to increase her stock of fabric and clothing. With her second loan, Sara will increase her stock in order to increase sales. Her dream is to one day have a big shop where she can sell her products.
