A loan of $4,125 helped a member to buy salon equipment and home food.


Serena Group's story

Mary, who is just 22 years old, is married and has a baby who is still younger. She has been running a beauty salon for two years. She works from 9am to 10pm daily, and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to restock missing beauty salon items, cover household expenses, some amount saved and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a new loan to buy salon equipment and home food. Her dream is to one day be able to build a house.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Serena, which totals 17 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Mary, Aziza , Asha, Ally, Ashura, Asha, Nuru, Ramadhani, Hilda, Tabu, Idrisa, Shufaa, Amina, Hawa, Yasinta, Swalfa, Mate
