A loan of $2,525 helped a member to buy more equipment for mobile-telephone sales.

Quintilion Group's story

Hashim S., who is in his early 20s, is married with one small baby girl. He has been running a mobile-telephone business for three years now. He works from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Hashim's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to increase his supply of telephone spare parts, telephone housings and furniture. He has paid back all his loans successfully. He hopes for a loan to buy more equipment for mobile-telephone sales.

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