A loan of $3,500 helped a member to buy more shop products like dry food items (rice and flour), airtime, and other needed items.


Tanzanite Group's story

Edmund, who is in his late 30's, is married with two children, one of whom is in school. Since 2007, Edmund has been managing to care for his family by running a general store shop selling different items. He works from 6:30 AM to 9:30 PM daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his fifteenth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Edmund with his previous loans (all of which he paid back successfully) restocked his general store shop with additional items. With the business profit he received, Edmund bought a music system, radio, TV, and sofa set. Edmund dreams that one day he will be able to build a nice family house. He will use this loan to buy more shop products like dry food items (rice and flour), airtime, and other needed items.

Edmund will share this loan with his loan group "Tanzanite" which totals ten members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Edmund, Chongera, Salim, Penina, Leah, Mafunda, Felista, Asha, Mwamvita, Siwema
