A loan of $2,400 helped a member to buy more business stock to sell to more customers.

Nuru-Lumo Group's story

Halima, who is in her early 40's, is married with two children who go to school. She has been selling fish for ten years now. She works from 6AM to 10PM daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This is her third loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to make more bricks, which she expects to use to build her own house, to pay school fees, and to pay household expenses. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy more business stock to resell to more customers. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Nuru-Lumo," which totals 16 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Halima, Semeni, Asha, Ester, Seleman, Elizabeth, Pili, Zainabu, Honorina, Romana, Christina, Somoe, Somoye, Edward, Yasini, Zahara
