A loan of $4,150 helped a member to buy more salon equipment and repaint the inside and outside of her beauty salon.

Kibosho Group's story

Fatuma, who is in her late 20s, is single and has one child who goes to school. She has had a beauty salon business for two years now. She works from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy cosmetics plus a dryer, TV set, coffee table, bed and mattress as well as to pay for household expenses. She has paid back all her loans successfully.

Fatuma is requesting a loan to buy more salon equipment and repaint her salon. Her dream is to one day be able to open another salon in a different location. Fatuma will share this loan with her loan group, "Kibosho," whose 16 members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Fatuma, Paulina, Maria, Zainabu, Amina, Secilia, Neema, Fransisca, Leila, Asha*, Salima, Jane, Lucy, Halima, Gloria, Amosi
