A loan of $3,275 helped a member to buy modern salon equipment.


Bethania Group's story

Asia, who is in her late 30s, is single with one child who attends school. For the past seven years, she has run a beauty salon. Asia works from eight in the morning until eight at night every day and is able to make a good monthly profit. She is a member of a loan group, called “Bethania,” which has 15 members who will hold each other accountable for repaying their loans. Asia is requesting her fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to enlarge her salon building and provide for her household expenses. She has successfully repaid all of her previous loans. Asia will use this loan to buy modern salon equipment to attract new customers. Her dream is to one day open another salon in a different location.
