A loan of $1,900 helped a member to expand her inventory.

Mwamko Group's story

Anitha T., who is in her early thirties, is married with three children. She has been running a second-hand sales business for 9 years. She works from 7.00 am to 6.00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Anitha's 1st "motisha" loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A "motisha" loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. She hopes for a loan to expand her business stock. Her dream is to open a shop selling food.

Anitha will share this loan with her loan group "Mwamko", which has a total of 11 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
