A loan of $4,800 helped a member to buy a plot of land and add more clothes to her shop to sell.

Khanga Group's story

Pili, who is in her 20s, is married. She has two girls: one goes to school, and the other one is still a baby. Since 2004, Pili has had a business that sells different kinds of clothes. She is doing fine with the business and family as well. She works from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and is able to earn a fair monthly profit.

This will be her fifteen loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy iron sheets, sacks of cements for house-building preparation, clothes, a TV, DVD, fridge, computer, covered school fees and home expenses, and has paid back all her loans successfully. She will use this loan to buy a plot of land and add more clothes to her shop to sell. Her dream is to one day be able to own enough money so that she can deposit some in her kids' bank accounts.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Khanga, which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Pili, Neema, Salama, Hadija, Saidi, Debora, Eliza, Chusi, Tabu, Prisca, Frola, Sikujua, Damalisi, Faines, Juma
