A loan of $4,400 helped a member to buy more iron sheets in order to make more suitcases to sell.

Wake - Up Group's story

Yohana who is in his early 40s is married with four children who are still going to school. He has been running a business of selling iron sheets since 2008.

He works from 6.00 AM to 6.00 PM daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.
This will be his 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to buy soft sheets for making iron suitcases (normally used by school children). In addition he used part of the loan for household expenses, and school fees. He has paid back his loan successfully. He is requesting a loan to buy more iron sheets and to make more suitcases to sell. He has a dream of opening another iron sheets shop in a different area.

He will share this loan with his loan group "WAKE - UP" that consists 5 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Yohana, Theodata, Salma, Anna, Fortunata, Juma, Said, Hamisi, Esther, Ramadhani, Rebeca, Elice, Edina, Deme, Issa
