Masaka Group's story

SALAMA who is in her early 50s is married with two children who are still going to school. She has been running a business of selling charcoal since 2009. She works from 7.00am to 8.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her 12th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase the charcoal stock and has paid back all her loans successfully.

Her dream is to one day be able to buy a car.
