A loan of $3,700 helped a member increase his grocery inventory.

Mbayuwayu Group's story

Said, who is in his early 40s, is married with three children who go to school. He has run a grocery and a welding business for four years. He works on welding from 7:00 a.m. TO 5:00 p.m. daily and employs a man in his grocery business. Said is able to generate a good monthly profit.

This will be Said's tenth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania Ltd. He used previous loans to buy a plot of land on which to build a house; to buy welding machines; and to cover household expenses and school fees. Said has successfully paid back all of his loans.

Said now hopes for a loan to increase his grocery inventory. His dream is to one day be able to own a hardware business. He will share this loan with his loan group, "Mbayuwayu Group," which totals eleven members. The members of the group will hold one another accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Said, Muhidini, Scolastica, Abdurahman, Abdalah, Obed, Antipas, Kamilius, Salumu, Charles, David
