A loan of $1,925 helped a member to buy more fabrics, bags and shoes to sell.

Kizota Group's story

Janeth, who is in her early 30's, is married. She has two children who go to school. She has been running a business of selling fabrics, shoes and hand bags, from door to door for 5 years now. She works from 8 a.m to 12 a.m (works for four hrs. only) daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Janeth's 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her inventory from just the fabrics to start selling shoes and hand bags. She also paid school fees and household expenses. Janeth has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to buy more fabrics, bags and shoes to sell.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Kizota", which has a total of 16 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Jane, Ereneo, David, Philemon, Husna, Pius, Macia, Mwanahamis, Amina, Kulwa, Mwajuma, Zabibu, Anna, Aisha, Riziki, Mariam
