A loan of $3,475 helped a member to purchase more salon equipment.


Ushindi Group's story

Avilata, a single woman in her early 20's, has been running a beauty salon for one year now. She works from 8.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit. This will be Avilata's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she will use to purchase more salon equipment, the same use to which she put her first loan.



Avilata will share this loan with her loan group "Ushindi" which has a total of 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Avilata, Erick, Dorice, Josephina, Mwanahamis, Situmai, Hadija*, Zainabu, Ally, Mwashaban, Amina, Hadija, Halima, Mariam, Semeni*
