A loan of $3,825 helped a member to buy clothes to sell.

Mwangaluka Group's story

Mwanaisha, who is born in the early 1970s, is married and lives with her husband. They are blessed with three children--two sons and one daughter. She managed to enroll one child in school, and the others are still young. Mwanaisha has been managing a business selling clothes door to door for a year. She sells her stock mostly on credit rather than for cash, due to the nature of her clients’ income flows and competition. She works from 9 am to 4 pm daily and is able to make a small profit each month. This will be her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she will use to buy clothes to sell. She dreams that one day she will be able to improve her business by having business premises and selling more clothes. Mwanaisha will share this loan with the Mwangaluka loan group, which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Mwanaisha, Rebeka, Mwanahamisi, Amina, Nuru, Amina, Rehema, Nuru, Amina, Aisha, Amina*, Neema, Jamillah, Zainabu, Farida
