A loan of $4,375 helped a member to buy more fabrics and materials for making more dresses.


Almasi Group's story

Victoria, who is in her late thirties, is married with five children, four of whom go to school. She has been working as a tailor and selling fabrics since 2006. She works from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, and she wants to use it to buy more fabrics and materials for making more dresses. Her dream is to one day be able to open a big shop where she can put more sewing machines and good tailors.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Almasi" which has a total of 19 members, who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Victoria, Mucksin, Omary, Matrida, Siwema, Fatuma, Hamadi, Amva, Said, Amina, Hemed, Asha, Jaka, Fatuma, Mary, Maimuna, Pili, Sharifa
