A loan of $3,925 helped a member to buy more second-hand clothes to sell.

Puma Group's story

A., who is in his mid-20s, is married and has one child who is going to school. He has been selling second-hand clothes for three years now. He works from 5:30 am to 7:30 p.m daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be his 1st loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which he wants to use to buy more second-hand clothes to sell door-to-door. His dream is to one day own a shop where he can sell new clothes and shoes.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Puma" which has a total of 19 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Ally, Tatu, Fatuma, Hidaya*, Hawa, Jamila, Hadija, Hadija, Mariam, Glory, Sharia, Neema, Mariam, Sophia, Hawa, Salma, Hadija, Pili, Sauda
