A loan of $3,025 helped a member to restock the cosmetics in her shop.


Mwembeni Group's story

Merina, who is in her early 30s, is a married woman with three children, a girl and two boys, who are in school. For a period of three years now, she has been running two businesses: a cosmetics business and a broiler. She is doing fine in this field and in her family. She works from 8am to 9pm daily and is able to make a good profit per month.

This will be her 15th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she repaid back successfully, she managed to open her current cosmetics shop and increase her broiler activities. With the profit received, she bought a plot of land where she expect to build a house in the future. She will use this loan to restock the cosmetics in her shop. She dreams of building a house.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Mwembeni," which totals 13 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Merina, Kuruthumu, Halima, Hassani, Aisha, Cuthbert, Twahiru, Evelina, Husna, Emanuel, Subira, Lucy, Dotto
