A loan of $1,525 helped a member to increase her stock of cosmetics to resell.

Pamba Group's story

Mwajuma, who is in her mid 30s, is married and has three boys; two are in school and the other is still young. Mwajuma is employed but also earns a living by running three businesses: a beauty salon and cosmetics sales since 2006 and a genge-duka (grocery stall) selling fruits, vegetables and charcoal since 1996. She employs workers to run her two businesses but sells cosmetics herself to specific customers. Her businesses operate from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and are able to give her a good profit.

This will be Mwajuma's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania and she wants to use it to increase her stock of cosmetics to resell. Mwajuma's dream is to one day be able to expand all her businesses. She will share this loan with her loan group "Pamba" which consists of 10 members who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

In this group: Mwajuma, Joyce, Elice, Rose, Godfrey, Jumanne, Moses, Ibrahim, Husna, Furaha
