A loan of $2,725 helped a member to buy more wood for his furniture business and to buy a passenger truck.


Juma Omary's Mt Udzungwa Group's story

Juma O., age 40, is married with six children (ages 16,14,12,10, 8, and 6). He has been a carpenter for 10 years. He works from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm daily and is able to make a monthly profit of around $169.

Previously, Juma has taken out one loan from Tujijenge Tanzania to increase his capital. He hopes for a new loan to buy more wood for his furniture mart and to buy a passenger truck for transporting goods. Juma will share this loan with his group members dealing in poultry, animal keeping, and selling food, fruits, vegetables, and cold drinks and beers. These members hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
