A loan of $3,350 helped a member to buy more sarongs and fabrics to resell.

Moyo Safi Group's story

Tuhuma is in her early 40s and is a widow with four children and two dependents who are the children of late relatives. She has been selling sarongs and fabrics door to door for 12 years now. She works from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Tuhuma's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase the sarongs and the fabrics that she sells, paid school fees, bought a TV, DVD player and deep freezer, repaired her house by making a smooth floor and painting all her rooms, and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a new loan to buy more sarongs and fabrics to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to build a business premises and stop selling door to door.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Moyo Safi", which has 15 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Tuhuma, Mwanalisa, Mary, Sophia, Eugenia, Ramadhani, Witness, Kisse, Jamila, Sabra, Saida, Tausi, Fatuma, Mahija, Hawa
