Kisarawe One Group's story

Basilia, who is in her early 50s, is married and has four children who are still going to school. She has been selling various kinds of clothes for three years. She works from 10 am to 7 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be Basilia'a sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more types of clothes to sell door-to-door and to lend her money to people who pay her back with interest. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profits to pay school fees and household expenses. She will use this loan to increase her stock and to buy different types of clothes to resell. Her dream is, one day, to be able to buy a plot of land and build her own house. Basilia will share this loan with the other members of Kisarawe One Group, which consists of twelve members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

In this group: Basilia, Pendo, Daudi, Fatuma, Nyasinde, Hawa, Mohamedi, Moshi, Asha, Manka*, Mather, Habiba
