A loan of $5,150 helped a member to finish building her house.


Msakuzi Group's story

Benedicta, who is in her late 40s, is single, with a boy who is an adult and who has completed his college studies.

For a period of three years now, she has been running a cross-border business, selling clothes to specific customers. She has no business premises and no specific working time. Whenever she buys her products, she delivers them straight to the customers' premises, according to their orders.

This will be her 14th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania Ltd. She used the previous loans to buy a three-wheel motorcycle (Bajaji), increased her stocks of clothes, and started building her house. She has successfully paid back all of her loans.

She will use this loan to finish building her house. Her dream is to one day be able to open another business, so as to expand her portfolio.

Benedicta will share this loan with her loan group, "Msakuzi," which totals 12 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Benedicta, Rofina, Fransisca, Joseph, Lucy, Kulwa, Isack, Martha, Calista, Linda, Bora*, Mery
