A loan of $2,975 helped a member to buy more clothes to sell.

Maendeleo Group's story

Zuhura, who is in her early 30s, is married. Of her three children, two go to school. She has been selling new clothes door to door for three years now. She works from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (four hours only) daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be her 11th loan, from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase the clothes stock, managed to buy a piece of land and to pay for her upkeep with household expenses. She has paid back all of her loans successfully. She wants another loan to increase her clothes stock. Her dream is to, one day, be able to build her house, now that she has land.

Zuhura will share this loan with her loan group, "Maendeleo", which has a total of 15 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Zuhura, Maimuna, Hawa, Hamisi, Mrisho, Fatuma, Salma, Fikiri, Evarista, Mwanahawa, Doto, Salumu, Aneth, Aisha*, Happyness*
