A loan of $4,475 helped a member to buy more beers.


Royal Group's story

Mariam O., who is in her late thirties, is married with one child. She has been running a grocery business where she sells beer, soda and water. She starts working at 4.00pm until around midnight daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Mariam's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy empty crates and beer and has paid back her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to buy more beer. It seems she has more customers who buy beer than sodas and water. Her dream is to one day start a chicken business.

Mariam will share this loan with her loan group "Royal" which has a total of 16 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
