A loan of $2,525 helped a member to buy a plot of land.

White Group's story

M. A., is in his early forties and married with two children. He has been operating a general store for 13 years. He works from 7.00am to 10.00pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be M.'s 2nd "motisha" loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A "Motisha" loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. He used the previous loan to increase the general store inventory and has paid back his loan successfully. He hopes for a loan to buy a plot of land. His dream is to one day start travelling upcountry and collect his shop inventory.

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