Mwale Group's story

Maulid who is in his mid thirties is married with two children who are still going to school. He has been running a business of selling cold drinks and dry food for five years now. He works from 6am to 10pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be Maulid's seventh loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to restock the out-of-stock items in his shop and has paid back all his loans successfully. He used his profits to buy a bed, a TV set and a radio; and paid school fees and met his household expenses. He is very happy with the loan. He will use this loan to buy more soda, juice, water, wheat flour, baking flour, beans, sugar, cooking oil and rice to resell. His dream is to one day be able to own a wholesale shop for his items. Maulid will share this loan with his loan group, Mwale, which has 12 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Maulid, Jane, Pili, Arafa, Pili, Magreth, Oliva, Asma*, Mwanahamis, Safina, Yusufu, Leah
