A loan of $4,275 helped a member to increase her stock of clothes and wheat.

Merikebu Group's story

Eshi N., who is in her early fifties, is single with three children. She has been selling ladies clothes door to door as well as selling wheat to local brew businesses for four years. She works from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Eshi's fouth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more fabrics and sacks of wheat for the local brew and has paid back her loan successfully. She hopes for a loan to increase her business stock. Her dream is to one day build her own house and take her children to good schools.

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

In the picture, Eshi is first on the right in the front row.

In this group: Eshi, Edina, Shaibu, Esther, Pili, Jumanne, Mayasa, Eliza, Amina, Renada*, Jabir, Salma, Binamzi, Gasper, Helimina, Sakina, Ramadhani
