A loan of $2,200 helped a member to buy more sacks of charcoal, fabrics and sarongs.

Ebeneza Group's story

Dorothea, who is in her late 20s is married with one child who goes to school. She has been running a business of selling charcoal for six years. She works from 6.00 am to 10.00 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Dorothea's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase the charcoal stock. She started selling fabrics and sarongs and has successfully paid back the loan. She hopes for a loan to buy more sacks of charcoal, fabrics and sarongs. Her dream is to one day be able to open a big clothing and cosmetics shop.

Dorothea will share this loan with her loan group "Ebeneza" that has 10 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Dorothea, Lucy, Regina, Mohamed, Delefina, Anness, Neema, Redemta, Victoria, Sophia*
