A loan of $4,250 helped a member to restock sacks of charcoal.


Actable The Best Group's story

Mohamed, who is in his late 50s, is married with eight children; three are in school and the rest are grown up and support themselves. Since the 1990s, Mohamed has been engaged in a charcoal-selling business. He started the project with a little capital, buying a few sacks of charcoal, but now his business has grown. Mohamed works from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a small profit per month.

This will be his third loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, both of which he repaid successfully, he restocked sacks of charcoal. The profit received from the business was used to pay for school fees and home expenses. He will use this loan to restock sacks of charcoal. Mohamed thinks that one day he will be able to expand his project by stocking more charcoal so that he can manage greater customer demand.

He will share this loan with his loan group, Actable the Best, which totals 13 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Mohamed, Hajra, Diana, Sophia, Kelvin*, Maxiwilliam, Selema, Kijoli, Omary, Asha, Pesa, Christian, Pili
