A loan of $3,600 helped a member to buy salon equipment.


Magu Group's story

Josephine, who is in her late 30s, is single and has one child who attends school. She has had a beauty salon business for six years. She works from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Josephine's 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to add more salon equipment and to pay school fees and household expenses. She has repaid all her loans successfully. Josephine wants a loan to buy some missing salon equipment and to pay school fees. Her dream is to one day be able to open a designing business.

Josephine will share this loan with her group “Magu” which consists of 13 members who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

In this group: Josephine, Riziki, Sihaba, Levina, Hadija, Habiba, Chengura, Said, Michael, Veneranda, Halima, Asha, Mallya
