A loan of $5,850 helped a member to increase her business stock to resell.

Umoja Kigogo Group's story

Linda, who is in her early 30s, is married and living with her husband with a girl of one year old. She has been selling clothes (fabrics), cultural sandoes (a kind of shoes made by using animal skin), and other cultural wearings for four years now. She works from 7 AM to 6 PM daily and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she wants to use to increase her business stock to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to expand her business.

Linda will share this loan with her loan group "Umoja Kigogo," which totals 16 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Linda, Asha, Joseph, Martha, Prisca, Easter, Christina, Teddy, Thabita, Amina, Charles, Agnes, Lucy, Anna, Winifrida, Easter
