A loan of $4,125 helped a member to buy an overlocking machine.

Mabomba Mengi Group's story

Balozi, who is in his early forties, is married with three children, two of whom go to school. He has had a tailoring business since 1988. He works from 8am to 6pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be his fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy sewing materials and household expenses and has paid back all his loans successfully. He hopes for a loan to buy an overlocking machine. His dream is to own more sewing machines so that he can win big government tenders.

He will share this loan with his loan group, "Mabomba Mengi", which has a total of 18 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Barozi, Mwanaisha, Farida, Fartuma, Josephina*, Fatuma, Victoria, Mwaiyari, Safina, German, Fatuma, Kana, Mwanaisha, Etikia, Hassan, Mkongweni, Saidi, Mwajuma*
