A loan of $3,850 helped a member to restock more missing products in her retail shop to resell.


Samawati Group's story

Amina, who is in her early thirties, is married with four children (three boys and a girl), who are enrolled in school. Since 2006, she has been running a retail shop, selling products like dry foods, phone airtime, and other products. Amina is also managing two businesses; one is selling water that she stores in a tank, and the other is a catering business.

Amina has employed few helpers. She starts working from 06:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., or sometime to midnight if she has a catering activity to supply food. Amina is able to make a good profit per month. From Tujijenge Tanzania, this is her 14th loan request, which she will use to restock more missing products in her retail shop to resell. With the previous loans, all of which paid back successfully, she purchased more stock for her retail shop and bought new catering equipment, such as serving dishes.

Amina used her profit to cover school fees and household expenses. She also bought a land and reinvested back into her business. She dreams to be a known business person with a better life. She will share this loan with her loan group, Samawati, which totals 6 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Amina, Grace, Rehema, Mary, Aida, Navoneiwa
