Muungano Group's story

S. is in his early 30s and is married with three children; two of them go to school. He has had a butcher business since 2003. He works from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be his 2nd "Motisha" loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A "Motisha" loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania given in the middle of the main loan that motivates borrowers with good credit ratings who pay back their loans smoothly. They receive half the amount of the existing loan before their original loan term has ended. He used the previous loan to buy more meat, fresh fish, chicken, household expenses and has paid back his loan successfully. He wants a loan to increase stock of meat in his the butcher shop. His dream is to one day open another butchery in a different area.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Muungano" which has a total of 16 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.
