A loan helped a member to buy wood, pipe, and iron sheets.

Utamaduni Group's story

Happy is in her early 30s and single with three children. For the past year she has been selling hardware. Happy works daily from eight in the morning through six in the afternoon and is able to make a good monthly profit.

Happy is requesting her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, that she will use to buy more pieces of wood, pipe, and iron sheets. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

Happy will share this loan with her group, "Utamaduni" which has a total of 19 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans. (One member was talking on the telephone so only part of her body appears in this photo.)

In this group: Happya, Melisa, Merciana, Salcimu, Mtuniwa, Rukia, Musse, Irene, Zanin, Tabia, Hiyari, Joyce, Region, Margret, Zainabu, Salama, Pili, Helena, Rukia
