A loan of $2,650 helped a member to start selling charcoal and also buy more bags.

Kizota Group's story

Tatu S., who is in her late thirties, is married with two children. She has been running a business of selling ladies clothes and handbags for three years. She sells her products from door to door. She works from 9.00am to 4.00pm (7 hours only) and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Tatu's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy bedsheets, hand bags, face creams and food at a local place. She has paid back all her loans sucessfully. She hopes for a loan to buy more bags and she will start selling charcoal.

Tatu will share this loan with her loan group "Kizota", which has a total of 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
