A loan of $3,825 helped a member to increase her charcoal stock.


Utamaduni Group's story

Zainabu is a member of Utamaduni group and is in her early 40s. She is single with three boys, two of whom are in school while one has finished already. She has been running a charcoal business for three years now. She works from 7am to 6pm daily and she is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be her eleventh loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used previous loans to: buy a plot of land where she expects to start building her house, pay school fees and household expenses, make more bricks for her future house, and buy more charcoal. Zainabu has paid back all her loans successfully. She requests this loan to increase her charcoal stock. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

This group loan will be shared between all 11 members of the Utamaduni Group. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

In this group: Zainabu, Pili, Rukia, Musse, Irene, Joyce, Helena, Rukia, Stela, Mtumwa, Tabia
