A loan of $2,400 helped a member to make more bricks to sell.

Iguguno Group's story

Leonard is in his early thirties and divorced with one child. His son is too young to go to school.

For the past year Leonard has worked as a brick maker. He works from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. each day and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Leonard's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He will share this loan with his loan group. The group is called “Iguguno” and has sixteen members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

Leonard wants to use his loan to make more bricks to sell. His dream is to buy a plot of land upon which to begin farming vegetables.

In this group: Leonard, Lucas, Jackson, Salome*, Deo, Fatuma, Deogratius, Rose, Zaina, Scola, Abubakari, Faraja, Iluminata, Agnes*, Joyce, Ngonda
