Lotus Group's story

Yusuph, who is in his early 50s, is married with four children (gender balance) who are in school. For a period of four years now, Yusuph has been running a clothes selling business (fabrics). He works from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to earn a fair profit per month.

This will be his tenth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which he paid back successfully, he managed to increase his business stocks to resell to more customers. With the profit earned, he finished building his house at the village and covered school fees.

He will use this loan to increase his business stock and start selling charcoal. He dreams to expand wide his project.

Yusuph will share this loan with his loan group “Lotus”, which totals thirteen members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
