Tupendane C Group's story

Twaha, who is in his early 40s, is married with three children. Two of them are grown up and the last one is still going to school. Twaha has been a tailor for fifteen years now. He works from 8.00 am to 10.pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Twaha's 21st loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy more sewing machines. Twaha started with one sewing machine but now he has four sewing machines, plus employees. He used to sew Mosquito nets but now he makes good dress suits for men and can print labels on T-shirts. He used his profit to buy a plot of land and has started building his house. He also used the profit to pay school fees and cover household expenses. Twaha has paid back all his loans successfully. He will use this loan to buy a zig-zag machine for making designs on clothes. He dreams of finishing building his house, renovating his working place by enlarging it, and painting the shop to make it more attractive.

Twaha will share this loan with his loan group "Tupendane C" which has a total of 11 members, who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Twaha, Agatha, Mwanahamis, Halima, Rukia, Mariam, Regina, Halima, Emanuel, Zena, Hamisa
