Mkwalia Group's story

Sultan, who is in his early 30s, is single with one small child. He has been running a fruits and vegetables stall and has a small shop where he sells dry foods like sugar, wheat flour, baking flour, salt, beans, cooking oil, paraffin, match boxes and cigarettes for five years now. He works from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his 7th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to make bricks, to buy stock to replace the missing items in both of his businesses, and to cover household expenses. Sultan has paid back all of his loans successfully. He wants to use this loan to increase his retail shop's stock, to buy more fruits and vegetables and to make some bricks. His dream is to one day be able to build his own house.

He will share this loan with his loan group, "Mkwalia," which has a total of 10 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Sultan, Thabit, Jackline, Aisha, Rukia, Mwanahamis, Habiba, Paulina, Halima, Ashura
