A loan of $4,225 helped a member to buy products that are missing from her cosmetics line.


Ari Mpya Group's story

Muslima, who is in her mid-40s, is married and has two children -- one son and one daughter. One of her children is enrolled in school. For seven years, Muslima has had a cosmetics shop. She opens from 10:00AM to 7:00PM, daily. From working at the business for this time, Muslima is able to receive a better return per month. This is Muslima's tenth loan request to Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, Muslima purchased more cosmetics to sell at her shop. She will use this new loan to buy products that are missing from her cosmetics line. She uses her profits from business to cover school fees, home expenses, and to save in her bank account. Her dreams are to be a big businesswoman, and well-known. Muslima will share this loan with her loan group, Ari Mpya, which is comprised of seven members. The members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Muslima, Mariam, Ashura, Tausi, Amina, Mwadhan, Maka
