A loan of $4,700 helped a member to buy more stock of hardware to resell.

Mt. Livingstone Group's story

Modesta, who is in her mid 40s, is married with two children who are still going to school. She has been running a hardware shop business for four years now. She works from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Modesta's sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her hardware stock and also bought the missing stock for her shop. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to buy land and has built and completed her small house. She also covered household expenses and paid school fees as well. She will use this loan to buy more stock of hardware to resell. She dreams of buying sheets of iron.

Modesta will share this loan with her loan group "Mt. Livingstone" with twelve members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Modesta, Josephine, Zuwena, Zainabu, Naomi, Rose, Sebastian, Reza*, Adinan, Averina, Zena, Sabina
