A loan of $2,525 helped a member to purchase additional tailoring materials.

Becham Group's story

Fausta, who is in her late twenties, is married with two children. Her children both attend school. She has been a tailor since 2005. Every day, she works from 8 am to 8 pm and, by doing so, is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This would be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy tailoring items and a sewing machine, and for household expenses. She has paid all of her loans back successfully. She is now seeking a loan to buy more and different types of materials. Her dream is to one day be able to start selling fabrics and sarongs.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Becham," which has a total of 15 members, all of whom hold each other accountable in paying back their portions of the loan.

In this group: Fausta, Roda, Elizabeth*, Matilda, James, Livinus, Helmelgilda, Aibina, Christopher, Veronica, Anjelina, Beatrice, Christopher, Shadya*, Kichiki
