A loan of $5,950 helped a member buy charcoal to resell.

Kisiwani Group's story

Rose, who is in her late 30s, is married with four children, three of them go to school and the last one is still small. She has had a charcoal business for three years now. She works from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Rose's 7th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to start selling charcoal at wholesale price, selling wheat flour and rice at whole sale price, and pay household expenses. She has repaid back all her loans successfully. Rose wants a new loan to buy more sacks of charcoal to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

Rose will share this loan with her loan group " Kisiwani", which has a total of 15 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Rose, Kijoli, Jane, Patricia, Hawa, Hadija, Digna, Christina, Anjelina, Jane, Jamila, Rehema, Cecilia, Bahati, Dominica*
