A loan of $4,225 helped a member to increase stock.


Valentine Group's story

Susan K., who is in her late thirties, is married with two children. She sells fabrics and sarongs door to door, and ice cubes at a place called Mwenge some kilometers from the city centre. She has been in this business for 6 months and works from 8.00am to 6.00pm daily. She is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Susan's second loan from Tujenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy more fabrics and sarongs and has repaid her loan successfully. She hopes for a loan to further increase the stock in her business.

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