A loan of $5,150 helped a member buy equipment for his barber shop.


Apple Group's story

Amani, who is in his late 20s, is married and blessed with a baby boy. Amani has been managing his family expenses by running a barber shop business for four years. He works from 8:00am to 9:00pm each working day and is able to earn a good monthly return.

This is Amani's second loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, which he will use to buy more barbershop equipment. He is looking forward to servicing more men in his shop. The previous loan, which he has paid back successfully, was used to add new business machines and other daily working equipment. Amani used his business profit to pay for his family food expenses and kept the remains in the bank. Amani dreams to open other branches and build a house.

Amani will share this loan with his loan group "Apple" which consist of 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Amani, Maua, Suzan, Happy, Makawenzige, Neema, Devota, Jane, Fina, Dorah
