A loan of $1,950 helped a member to buy more sacks of charcoal to resell.


Msakuzi A1 Group's story

Esther, who is in her early 40s, is married with four children who are in school. Since 1998, Esther has been managing two different businesses: a dry food shop that sells rice, maize flour, baking flour, beans, sugar and other food, and a charcoal business. Esther starts working from 6:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. per working day and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

From Tujijenge Tanzania, this is her first loan request, which she will use to buy more sacks of charcoal to resell. Esther dreams to build a nice family house. She will share this loan with her loan group "MSAKUZI A1," which consists of six members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Esther, Kulwa, Linda, Joyce, Lucy, Bora
