Tuwezeshane Group's story

Jonathan C., in his mid-thirties and a married father of three children who are still going to school, has been running a butcher business for 15 years now. He works from 6:00 am to 4:00 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Jonathan's fifth loan from Tujijenge, his repaid previous loans having been used to increase his meat stock and to start a cosmetics-selling business. He hopes for a loan to buy more meat and more cosmetcs and dreams of one day building his own house.

Jonathan will share this loan with his loan group "Tuwezeshane" which has a total of 15 members, who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loan portions.
