A loan of $5,750 helped a member to purchase more salon equipment.


Safina Group's story

Asha, who is in her mid-30s, is a married mother of two children, both of whom attend school. The operator of a beauty salon since 2000, she is able to make a fair monthly profit working from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily.



Now requesting her fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania to purchase more salon equipment, Asha used her previous loans, all since repaid, to restock items in her salon and to pay school fees. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.



She will share this loan with her loan group "Safina," which has a total of 18 members who will hold each other accountable for repaying their loans.

In this group: Asha, Veneranda, Yusta, Andrew, Hadija, Sauda, Ramda, John, Hamisi , Kasim , Nasra, Haji, Monica, Emannuel, Mary Riward, Agness, Hawa, Asha.....
