A loan of $2,850 helped a member to buy more secondhand clothes to resell and materials for sewing school uniforms.


Wastara Group's story

Edson, who is in his early 40s, is married and has three children who go to school. He has been running a business of selling secondhand clothes for seven years now. He works from 6:00 am to 8:00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be his 6th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to increase the stock of secondhand clothing, started another business of looking for tenders for sewing children uniforms, bought sofa sets, and paid school fees and household expenses. He has paid all of his loans successfully. He wants a loan to buy more secondhand clothes to resell and materials for sewing school uniforms. His dream is to one day build his own house.

Edson will share this loan with his loan group "Wastara", which has a total of 16 members, who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Edson, Magreth, Khadija, Lilian, Latifa, Khadija, Stewart, Upendo, Mwamvita, Chiku, Nassra, Nuru, Salama, Doris, Asha, Faida
