A loan of $2,800 helped a member to buy more sarongs and fabrics to resell.


Karume Group's story

Lusia, who is in her mid-30s, is married with three school-going children. She has been selling sarongs, fabrics and chapati (flat bread) for 15 years now. She works from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be her fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Lusia used the previous loans to pay her children's school fees, buy a plot of land and build a small house. She also bought more sarongs and fabrics as well as two bags of baking flour and a bucket of cooking oil for making more chapati and a sack of charcoal. She has paid all her loans successfully. She requests a loan to buy more sarongs and fabrics to resell. Her dream is to one day own a clothing shop. She will share this loan with her loan group "Karume" with 12 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Lusia, Mwanahamisi, Salima, Ally, Prisca, Sikujua, Mohamed, Abubakari, Nasma, Isaka, Sada, Mtumwa
