A loan of $1,575 helped a member to buy more new clothes, second-hand clothes, and fabrics to re-sell.


Chakechake Group's story

Helena, who is in her late 40s, is married with five children who go to school. She has a business of selling new clothes, second-hand clothes, and fabrics. She has been selling door-to-door for five years now. She works from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (for three hours only) daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to re-stock missing items, pay school fees, and start selling fabrics. She has paid back her loan successfully. She wants a loan to buy more new clothes, second-hand clothes, and fabrics to re-sell. Her dream is to one day be able to open a shop for selling her items.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Chakechake" which has a total of 13 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Helena, Ashura, Neema, Consolata, Farida, Anna, Anna, Tarisila, Asha, Peter, Angela, Elina, Esther
