A loan of $1,975 helped a member to increase her business.

Maclaren Group's story

Magdalena L., who is in her late forties, is married with five children. She has had a charcoal business for fifteen years. She works from 6am to 8pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Magdalena's 2nd 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 has paid back her previous loan successfully. She hopes to obtain a new loan to increase her business.

Magdalena will share this loan with her loan group, Maclaren, which has nine members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
