A loan of $1,625 helped a member to restock his general store.

Ulongani Group's story

Hassani, who is in his late 20s, is married with three children, two of whom go to school. The third child is still young. Hassani has been running a general store for five years now. He works from 5:00 am to 11:00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to buy a dip freezer and items missing from the store and has paid back his loan successfully. He wants a loan to restock missing items again. His dream is to one day be able to start selling his items at wholesale prices.

He will share this loan with his loan group, "Ulongani", which has a total of 11 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Hassani, Habiba, Fatuma, Mwanaid, Mwanhawa, Salum, Suma, Fatuma, Stella, Fatuma, Mariam
