A loan of $4,150 helped a member to open a new business selling clothes..


Chamwino Group's story

Fatuma, who is in her late 30s, is married with five children. One is in school while the rest are grown up. For a year now, Fatuma has had two businesses: a motorcycle for transportation and a charcoal-selling business. She works from 5:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. per working day and is able to make a good return per month.

This will be her second loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loan that she has paid back successfully, Fatuma purchased more sacks of charcoal, which she resold. She used the business profit to pay for school fees and household expenses, for repaying back the loan and saving for her future. Fatuma will use this loan to open a new business selling clothes. She dreams to expand her businesses.

Fatuma will share this loan with her loan group “CHAMWINO", which totals ten members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Fatuma, Noela, Robi, Jamila, Rukia, Neema, Amina, Hanisha, Zahara, Antuja
