Tabora Group's story

Halima, who is in her early 40s, is married with two children who are grown-ups.

She has been running three types of businesses, she sells water from big tanks, sews bedsheets with embroidery, and buys empty plastic bottles which she sells to the plastic factories. She has been in these businesses for four years now. She works from 6.00am to 8.00pm daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be Halima's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase stock on all her businesses and she has paid back her loan successfully. She used the profit to cover household expenses and started building her house. She is really happy with the loan and is making a lot of progress.

She will use this loan to buy more empty plastic bottles and also to buy broken plastic buckets to sell in the same plastic factory. She dreams of building and finishing her house.

Halima will share this loan with her loan group, Tabora Group, with ten members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Halima, Josepha, Margaret*, Benedicta, Arafa, Vumilia, Frida, Anna, Amos, Asha
