A loan of $3,350 helped a member to purchase more sacks of charcoal.

Tiro Group's story

Malizia, who is in her early 30’s, is married and lives with her husband. She is the mother of three children (two boys and a girl) who are in school. For a period of three years now, she has operated two businesses, selling food and charcoal. She is doing fine with her businesses and her family as well. She works from 6 AM to 8 PM daily and is able to generate a fair profit each month.

This is Malizia's fourth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She repaid her previous loans successfully and used them to restock items in both her food and charcoal businesses. With the profit she earned, she bought a cupboard, covered home expenses and paid school fees. She will use this loan to increase her stock of sacks of charcoal. Her dream is to one day be able to build a nice family house and provide her children with a better education.

She will share this loan with her loan group "TIRO," which has a total of 10 members. The members of TIRO will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Malizia, Banali, Tofiri, Nasra, Halima, Tausi, Shuruti, Alice, Mkejina, Naima
