A loan of $1,325 helped a member to buy another pool table and chips.


Abeli's Juhudi Group's story

Abeli, age 28, is married with 3 children (ages 5, 4, and 1). He is a very busy man running 3 businesses. He works daily from 10am to 11pm and sells chips, does masonry work, and also runs a pool table business. He started these businesses 2 years ago and makes a total monthly profit of about $170 from his work.

In the past, Abeli took 2 loans from Tujijenge Tanzania to purchase stock for his businesses. He also used the loans to support his wife's business. He now hopes for a new loan to buy another pool table and to also buy more chips. He will share this loan with his subgroup whose members own small general stores.
