A loan of $3,325 helped a member to buy more sacks of charcoal to resell.


Uhuru Group's story

Julius,who is in his mid 40s, is single with a son who goes to school. For one year, Julius has been earning a living by managing a business selling charcoal. He is doing fine. He works from 6am to 7pm daily, and he is able to earn a fair monthly profit.

This will be his second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to increase his sacks of charcoal and has paid back his loan successfully. He is requesting a loan that he wants to use to buy more sacks of charcoal to resell to more customers. His dream is to one day be able to buy a plot of land, where he expects to build a house in the future.

Julius will share this loan with his loan group, "UHURU", which totals ten members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Julias, Reconciliator, Bitumi, Basilisa, Julieth, Frola, Mwanaidi, Zakia, Judith, Upendo
