A loan of $4,925 helped a member to open a new fruits and vegetables stand.

Saadan Group's story

Erick S. is 38 years old, married and has one child who is in secondary school. Since 2007, he has made a living by selling fruits and vegetables. He works from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily and makes a small monthly profit from his business. He is applying for his fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Erick successfully repaid his previous loans, which he used to expand his business and buy more items to sell to his customers. He plans to use his portion of this loan to open up a new fruit and vegetable stand in his neighborhood. His dream is to someday own a large supermarket. Erick belongs to a 19-member loan group called "Saadan." Each member holds all the others accountable for repaying this loan.
