A loan of $2,150 helped a member to buy more shoes to resell.

Uzima Group's story

Muhamad, who is in his early 60s, is married with four children and several grandchildren. He has been running a business of selling secondhand shoes for three years now. He works from 8 a.m to 8 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be his first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which he wants to use to buy more shoes to resell. His dream is to one day be able to start selling shoes at wholesale.

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

In this group: Muhamad, Tucia, Mariam, Mwanaid, Jamila, Mwabami, Salma, Elizabeth, Mariam, Lusia, Agnes, Subira, Mohamed, Joyce, Flora
