Tunaweza Group's story

Grace M. is in her early twenties and is single. She has had a door-to-door, fabric selling business for two years. She works from 10.00am to 06.00pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit. This will be Grace's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy more fabrics and has paid back her loans successfully.

Grace will share this loan with her loan group, "Tunaweza", which has a total of 18 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
