A loan of $4,125 helped a member to buy rice, sugar, beans and wheat flour.

Tuwezeshane Group's story

Salum, who is in his early 40s, is married and has three children, one of whom goes to school and the other two are still too young. He has been running a food shop for five years now. He works from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Salum's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to restock the missing items in his food shop and pay school fees. He has paid back his loan successfully. He wants another loan to re-stock his shop with items like rice, sugar, beans and wheat flour. His dream is to one day become an international business man.

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

In this group: Salum, Halima, Mgeni, Hadija, Ally, Fahamu, Thomas, Jonathan, Dastan, Juma, Husuna, Hadija, Rukia, Farida, Hadija*
