A loan of $4,350 helped a member to start a Beauty Salon business.

Bahari Group's story

Janeth, who is in her late 30s, is married with three children who go to school. She has been running a food vendor business for three years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. (for five hours only) daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her ninth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to pay school fees, to buy fabrics to sell door to door and to pay household expenses. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to start a beauty salon. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Bahari", which has a total of 19 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Janeth, Esta, Anna, Anna, Yusufu, Mwanaid*, Salome, Lucy, Mayasa, Rehema, Veronica, Ally, Zuhura*, Sada, Hadija, Arafa, Hilda*, Christina, Fatuma
