A loan of $3,725 helped a member to increase capital for stock.


Mbinga Group's story

Tabu S., who is in her early thirties, is married with two children. She has been selling fabrics which she buys from Kigomm, the northern part of Tanzania, to sell in Kariakoo. Kariakoo is near the city center. She also sells from door to door. She works from 6.00am to 8.00pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Tabu's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She wants a loan to increase her capital so that she can increase her stock. Her dream is to open a shop and start selling clothes.

Tabu will share this loan with her loan group Mbinga, which has a total of 17 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loans.
