A loan of $5,325 helped a member to start selling new clothes door to door.

Tiro Group's story

Malidhia, who is in her early 30's, is married with three children who go to school. She has been running a cafe business selling food, juices, water, maandazi, vitumbua and chapati for two years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase the business stocks and opened a place for the business. (Previously, she used to sell as a vendor without premises, but now she has rented a room.) She has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to start selling new clothes door to door. Her dream is to one day be able to own a hotel and to send her children to good schools.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Tiro," which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan. (Two of the clients were laughing, so their faces can not be seen clearly, but at least 13 clients can be seen.)

In this group: Malidhia, Joseph, Zuhura, Omary, Nasra, Adelina, Ashura, Halima, Karim, Tausi, Malizia, Elisante, Sauda, Laheli, Kuruthum
