A loan of $3,825 helped a member to purchase more Muslim type of dresses and body sprays.

Wega Group's story

Jema is in her early 30s, married, and has one child who attends school. For two years, she has been managing her family by running a shop selling body sprays, woman bags, body lotions, and Muslim type of dresses (madera in Swahili). Jema works from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM daily and is able to make very good returns each month.

Jema is requesting her fourth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With her previous loans all of which she paid back successfully, she bought more woman bags, body sprays, and lotions. Jema recently opened a permanent business premise where she sells her items. With the business profit, she pays school fees and household expenses and reinvests in the business. She will use this loan to buy more Muslim type of dresses and body sprays. Jema hopes that one day will be able to expand her business.

Jema will share this loan with her loan group, Wega, which consists 11 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Jema, Grace, Furaha, Hawa, Neema, Nelly, Sophia, Neema, Evelina, Fausta, Paulina
