A loan of $2,875 helped a member to purchase a variety of soap to sell.

Karoti 1B Group's story

Pendo, who is in her mid-20s, is a married mother of three children, two of whom go to school, while the third is still a baby. Since 2004, Pendo has been selling a variety of bathing soaps. Working from 7.00 am to 9.00 pm daily, she is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Pendo's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, her previous loans having helped her to offer a greater variety of soap for sale; the profits enabled her to buy a plot of land. All of her prior loans have been repaid. Pendo will use this one to replenish her stocks of soap. She dreams of building her own house.

Pendo will share this loan with her loan group "Karoti 1B" which has six members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Pendo, Anna, Christopher, Magreth, Dafrosa, Maria
