Security Group's story

Pily, who is in her early 30s, is married with two children. One of them goes to school. She has had a retail shop for four years now. She starts work at 6:00 a.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more stock of wheat flour, beans, and household items. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to increase her stock of shop items like sugar, wheat flour, baking flour, beans, salt, and juice. Her dream is to one day be able to own a boutique. She will share this loan with her loan group, "Security," which has a total of 14 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.
