A loan of $4,100 helped a member to buy more stock of clothes for resale.


Merikerebu Group's story

Elizabeth,who is in her late 40s, is married and has two children who go to school. She has had a business selling new clothes for 12 years now. She works from 6:00 am to 2:00 pm daily and she is able to make a good monthly profit. This will be her eighth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase the business' inventory, finished building her house, paid school fees and household expenses, and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to buy more stock of clothes to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to own a frame for her business location. She will share this loan with her loan group "Marikebu", which totals 16 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
