A loan of $3,375 helped a member to buy sacks of charcoal.


Compressor Group's story

Magret, who is in her late 30s, is married with three children who all go to school. She has been selling charcoal for five years now. She works from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her 10th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy a plot of land and start building a small house; buy a TV set, a big radio, and a sofa set; and pay school fees and household expenses. She has paid back all of her loans successfully. She wants this loan to buy more sacks of charcoal. Her dream is to one day be able to finish building her house.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Compressor, which has a total of 10 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Magret, Zaituni, Catherine, Sarah, Khadija, Gaudensia, Scola, Nasra, Zainabu, Anna
