Mabomba Mengi Group's story

Balozi, who is in his late 30s, is married with four children. Two of them go to school and two of them are still young. He has been a tailor and also has been selling second-hand TVs, radios, DVD decks and speakers since 1999. He works from 7:00 am to 8:30 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his seventh loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to start selling his second-hand products, paid school fees, made bricks, and for household expenses. He has paid back all his loans successfully. He wants a loan to buy more second-hand TV sets, radios, DVD decks and speakers to resell. His dream is to one day be able to build his own house.

Balozi will share this loan with his loan group "Mabomba Mengi" with 15 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Balozi, Etikia, Mwanaisha, Juma, Rehema, Hassan, Flora, Rose, Nuru, Elizabeth, Safina, Victoria, Mwanambenda, Mkungweni, Neema
