A loan of $3,250 helped a member to continue building his house.

Mawimbi Group's story

Pandu H., who is in his early sixties, is married with four children and twelve grandchildren (in the picture, Pandu is the only man and is in front). He sells coffee and water outside his house. He has been in business for 25 years. He works from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Pandu's fourth “motisha” loan fron Tujijenge Tanzania. A motisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania which allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. He has paid back his previous loans successfully. He hopes to obtain a loan to finish building his house in Zanzibar, an island off Tanzania.

Pandu will share this loan with his loan group, Mawimbi, which has a total of fourteen members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Pandu, Mtumwa, Asia, Rehema, Fatuma, Tendeje, Rehema*, Salama, Kidawa, Swaumu, Mariamu, Zainabu, Fatuma, Maimuna
