A loan of $900 helped a member to restock grocery drinks and other shop items to resell.


Mema Group's story

Clement, who is in his early 40s, is married, with four children who are in school.

For 15 years now, Clement has been running two businesses. One is a general store shop and another is a grocery business. He employed a few helpers in his business. Clement works from 6am to 11pm each working day and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Clement's 18th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his previous loans to open a grocery business where he restocked more drinks and bought more shop items and he bought one cow for a milk-selling production.

Clement has managed to successfully pay back all his loans. He used his profit to pay school fees and household expenses and he built a house.

He will use this loan to restock grocery drinks and other shop items to resell. Clement dreams to build a house for renting and to open a bar.

Clement will share this loan with his loan group, Mema Group, which totals four members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Clement, Mariamu, Gladnes, Aqwilina
