Songa Group's story

Basil, who is in his late 20's, is single. He has been running a business of electronic money transfer for almost one year now. He works from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Basil used the previous loan to increase the stock of electronic money transfers and has paid back his loan successfully. He used the interest to cover household expenses. He will use this loan to improve his business by expanding the space where the customers stand while waiting for their turn and to increase the stock of the business. His dream is to one day be able to own a car spare shop.

Basil will share this loan with his loan group "Songa" with 10 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Basil, Mary, Helena, Kashinde, Sikudhani, Magdalena, Ashura, Zena, Magreth, Bahati
