A loan of $5,575 helped a member to increase the stock of drinks for her shop.

Dar Group's story

Gema, who is in her mid-30s, is single with two children. One of her children goes to school, and another one is still small. She has been running a retail shop selling drinks at wholesale price for six years now. She works from 8.00 am to 4.00 pm daily and can make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Gema's 11th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her business stock, pay school fees, and cover household expenses, and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She now hopes for a loan to increase the stock of drinks for her shop. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

Gema will share this loan with her loan group "DAR," which has 10 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Gema, Bernadetha, Anastazia, Doreen, Magreth, Monica, Asha, Tassiana, Sophia, Tertula*
