A loan of $5,550 helped a member to restock second-hand clothes to resell.

Maendeleo Group's story

Bakari, who is in his late 20s, is single. He has been selling second-hand clothes for two years now. He is doing great and working hard. He works from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily and he is able to make a good monthly profit.

He has requested his first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which he wants to use to restock more second-hand clothes to resell. His dream is to one day be an international businessman importing and exporting clothes of different kinds.

He will share this loan with his loan group, Maendeleo, which has 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Bakari, Maimuna, Hamisi, Zuhura, Asegelile, Aisha, Fatuma, Fikiri, Salumu, Aneth, Salustiani, Dotto, Rukia, Said, Hashim
