A loan of $3,325 helped a member to purchase sacks of charcoal to sell.


Simba Group's story

Florida is in her late 30s, married, and has one child who attends school. She runs two businesses, selling clothes door to door and selling charcoal. She works from 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM daily and is able to earn a good monthly profit.

Florida is requesting her 12th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to start selling charcoal and increase her clothes stock. She used the profit to add one room on her small house, pay school fees, and cover household expenses. She will use this loan to buy more sacks of charcoal to sell. Her dream is to add another room on her house.

Florida will share with loan with her loan group Simba, consisting of 12 members who hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Florida, Hamza, Anitha, Theresia, Mary, Zuhura, Tumaini, Evelyne, Monica, Rosemary, Jackson, Zainabu
