Kitumbo Group's story

Salumu, who is in his mid 20s, is married with no children. He has been running a retail shop business since 2011. He works from 6.00 am to 9.00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Salumu's 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to restock missing items and bought new items as well. He has managed to pay back all his loans. He used the interest to buy a plot of land and covered household expenses. He will use this loan to increase the shop inventory. His dream is to one day be able to build his own house.

Salumu will share this loan with his loan group "KITUMBO" with 12 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Salumu, Hawa, Omary, Omary, Mohamed, Haji, Erick, Mwajuma, Kilian, Said, Tatu, Aisha
