A loan of $4,225 helped a member to collect more clothes and sell them upcountry.

Kambarage Group's story

Naima, who is in her late fifties, is a widow with five children, some of whom are still going to school. She has been running a clothes business for ten years now. She works from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her business stock and has successfully paid back her loan. She wants a loan to collect more clothes from Zanzibar and sell them upcountry. Her dream is to one day be able to have an international clothes shop.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Kambarage", which has a total of 22 members, who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Naima, Anthon, Naisi, Awetu*, Joseph, Salima, Zakayo, Edward, John, Bahati, Mwasi, Silas, Sophia, Upendo, Thabita, John, Joseph, Mwita, Kimadui, Doroth, Penina, Johanes
