A loan of $4,475 helped a member to open a new retail shop.

Sinza E Group's story

Rahimu, who is in his early forties, lives with his wife and two girls who are in school. He has been a tax driver for one year now, working from 5am to 10pm daily, and he is able to earn a fair monthly profit.

This will be his fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Rahimu used his previous loans to finish building his house and to pay tax, school fees and household expenses. He has paid back all his loans successfully.

Now Rahimu wants a loan to open a new retail shop for his wife so they can increase the family's income. His dream is to one day be able to buy a canteen. He will share this loan with his loan group, "Sinza E", which totals 12 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Rahimu, Raheli, Agness, Debora, Zena, Jafari, Abdala, Theofrida, Hamis, Magreth, Jamila, Hilda
