A loan of $3,250 helped a member to open a shop for fabrics and sell soda and juice as well.


Range Group's story

Martina R., who is in her late thirties, is married with four children. She sells fabrics from door to door. She has been in this business for three years and works from 9.00am to 6.00pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Martina's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase her fabrics stock and has paid back successfully. She hopes for a loan to open a shop where she will sell her fabrics and start selling juice and water. Her dream is to one day buy a small car so that she will be mobile and deliver her fabrics to more customers.

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