A loan of $4,700 helped a member to buy a roll of material and Batiki equipment.

Mawenzi Group's story

Halima, who is in her early 30s, is married and has two children who attend school. She has been running a business making and selling Batiki (tie-dye) for ten years. She works from 6.00 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Halima's 8th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy missing items for her Batiki business and a big radio and she has repaid all her loans successfully. Halima wants a loan to buy a roll of material and Batiki equipment. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

Halima will share this loan with her loan group "Mawenzi" which consists of 17 members who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

In this group: Halima, Faudhia, Rose, Frank, Jamal, Grace, Beatrice, Farida*, Aziza, Binaisa, Shabani*, Hamisi, Amina, Zamira, Amina, Salome, Chilala*
