A loan of $5,250 helped a member to buy more bedsheets to resell.


Forkland Group's story

Hamis, who is in his mid 40s, is married with nine children. Four of them are still going to school. He has been running a business selling fruit for three years now. He works from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his 5th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy a plot of land, more fruit, improve on the place where he sells his fruit, start selling bedsheets from door to door, and cover household expenses and school fees. He has paid back all his loans successfully. He now wants a loan to buy more bedsheets to resell. His dream is to one day be able to make his business bigger and to build his own house.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Forkland," which has a total of 15 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Hamis, Rehema, Sada, Illuminatha, Jacline, Phoibe, Hilda, Mwajuma, Salma, Salome, Tausi, Tungwilege, Muhsin, Jane, Mariam
