A loan of $3,825 helped a member to buy a dry-cleaner machine and a fridge for the cafeteria.

Mungu Tubariki Group's story

Solomoni, who is in his mid 40s, is single with a boy who is in college now.

He has been managing his life by running two different types of businesses, a cafeteria where he sells things like chips, juice, sodas and water, and a dry cleaning business. He has had the dry cleaning business since 2008 and has had the cafeteria for one year. In the cafeteria business, he has employed a helper. He works from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is able to make a small profit per month.

This will be his fourth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Solomoni used the previous loans to open the cafeteria business so as to grow his profits. With the profit from his businesses, he managed to cover household expenses and tuition fees for his boy, and to reinvest in the business.

He is trying to look for a way to improve his dry cleaning business so as to serve more people as well as earn more profit. He has paid back all his previous loans successfully. He will use this loan to buy a dry-cleaner machine and a fridge for the cafeteria. He dreams of seeing his businesses grow.

Solomoni will share this loan with his loan group "Mungu Tubariki," which consists of nine members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Solomoni, Fides, Martha, Khatima, Sakina, Joyce, Reginald, Anna, Ernest
