Mlimani Group's story

Said, who is in his early 30s, is married and lives with her wife. They have been blessed with a child. Since 2011, Said has been running a barber shop. He works from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. every working day. Through these long hours, he is able to make a very small profit per month.

This will be Said’s second loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his previous loan to buy barber shop hair cutting equipment and other barber supplies. Said has paid back his entire previous loan successfully. With the business profit received, he managed to cover home expenses. He will use this loan to open a beauty salon for his wife. Said dreams that one day he will be able to build a house.
