A loan of $3,850 helped a member to travel and sell baskets at Nairobi, Kenya.

Protea Group's story

Willium S., who is in his early 30s, is married and has two children who are at school. For two years now, he has been making traditional baskets that he sells from door to door. He works from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Willium's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy material for making baskets and has paid back his loans successfully.

He has made a good number of baskets, and he hopes for a loan to travel to Nairobi, Kenya, to sell his baskets.

His dream is to one day be able to make very many baskets and even to employee some helpers.

Willium will share this loan with his loan group, "Protea," which has a total of 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
