A loan of $5,125 helped a member to buy more meat for resale.


Mtaji Wa Masikini Group's story

Joseph, who is in his early 50s, is married, with two children, one is a grown-up and one is still at school. He has been selling meat for fifteen years now. He works from 9.00 am to 9.00 pm daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be Joseph's 13th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy land, has built his small house, bought furniture, a radio, and a television set, paid school fees, recovered household expenses, and has successfully paid back all his loans.

Joseph wants a loan to buy more stock of meat. His dream is to one day be able to go up-country and buy things, like rice.

Joseph will share this loan with his loan group "Mtaji Wa Masikini Group," with ten members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Joseph, Lucas, Baraka, Nicholaus, Paschal, Selemani, Victor, Robart, Selemani, Masumbuko
