A loan of $2,325 helped a member to increase purchase of telephone credit.

Songa Group's story

Basil is a single man who is in his late 20s. He has been running a telephone money transfer (Tigo Pesa, M-pesa) and game play station business. He has had this business for only six months. He works from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily and is able to earn a fair profit per month.

He has requested his first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania which he expects to increase telephone money transfers so as to provide this service to more customers. His dream is to one day be able to run a car spare parts business.

He will share this loan with his loan group, Songa, which totals 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Basil, Kulthum, Salma, Salum, Mary, Helena, Zuena, Shida, Jamali, Azora
