A loan of $3,075 helped a member to increase the business stock.

Si Mchezo Group's story

Tabu, who is in her early 40s, is married with five children who still go to school. She has had a cafe business since 2005. She works from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily and she is able to make a higher monthly profit.

This will be her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she wants to use to increase her business stock and cover her household expenses. Her dream is to one day be able to open a big cafe business with car parking and inn.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Si Mchezo" which totals 17 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Tabu, Tatu, Fatuma, Sarah, Halima, Siwatu, Hasara, Lulu, Mwanahamis, Esther, Mwajabu, Hadija, Swaumu, Hidaya, Rajabu, Hadija, Denis
