Uwezesho Group's story

Salum, who is in his early 20s, is married and has one child who is still young. For one-and-a-half years now, Salum has been earning a living by running a food shop. He works from 6:00am to 11:00pm daily and he is able to make a fair monthly profit.

He requests a third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy a plot of land, made more bricks, increased his inventory of rice, covered household expenses, and has paid back all his loans successfully. He hopes for a loan to increase the food shop's inventory. His dream is to one day be able to build a house.

He will share this loan with his loan group, "Uwezesho", which totals 11 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Salum, Mwajuma, Daud, Sefu, Mariam, Scholastica, Mohamed, Hussein , Msafiri, Asha, Eva
