A loan of $3,000 helped a member to buy more salon equipment.

Karume Group's story

Mariam, who is in her early 30s, is single with one child who attends school. She has been running a beauty salon for four years. She works from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Mariam's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy salon equipment which was out of stock and she has repaid her loan successfully. Mariam wants a loan to buy more salon equipment. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

Mariam will share this loan with her group "Karume" which consists of 20 members who will hold each other accountable for repaying their loans.

In this group: Mariam, Merisiana, Kulwa, George, Mohamed, Lusia, Amina, Regina, Rehema, Adam, Tabia, Nasma, Dotto, Farida, Sada, Mariam, Paulina, Ally, Salma, Grace
