A loan of $4,025 helped a member to increase his charcoal stock.


Mbogo Group's story

Mohamed A., who is in his early thirties, is married with two children. He has had a charcoal business for three years now. He works from 2:00am to 6:00pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Mohamed's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He hopes for a loan to increase his charcoal stock. His dream is to sell charcoal at wholesale prices and to send his kids to higher education.

Mohamed will share this loan with his loan group, Mbogo, which has a total of 19 members. The members of the group will hold each other responsible in paying back the loans.

In the picture, Mohamed is in blue, first on the right.
