A loan of $2,200 helped a member to purchase a better camera and film.

Kiluvya Group's story

Andrew M. is a 40-year-old father. He is married and has two children, ages 17 and 20. He is the leader of the Kiluvya group (the name means "community" in Swahili). He currently runs a photography business in his community near Dar es Salaam, earning a monthly profit of $85. He began doing photography eight years ago. He works from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm daily.

Andrew has taken out five loans with Tujijenge before, and he has succesfully repaid all of them. With this loan, he hopes to upgrade his camera and equipment, which will allow him to take more pictures of better quality. Furthermore, he is also using the loan to put together a collection of his work that he will sell when it is finished.

Along with Andrew, there are five other members in his group who will share the loan. These members own businesses ranging from tailoring to food vending. The group takes the loan out together and guarantees each member in the group to ensure full payback.

In this group: Andrew, Renatus, Ambros, Mazagazaga, Joyce, Miriamu
