Torees Group's story

Catherine, who is in her late 30s, is a single woman with a son who is in school. Since 1998, Catherine has been running a tailoring business. She is doing great in her business and starts working from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm each working day, and is able to make a good profit. This will be her sixth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to start a shop selling tailoring materials as well as buying one tailoring machine and more tailoring materials. Catherine managed to pay back all her previous loans successfully. She used her business profits to cover school fees and her household expenses. Catherine will use this new loan to buy additional tailoring materials. She dreams of opening a tailoring school. Catherine will share this loan with her loan group "TOREES", which has a total of 3members. The members of this group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
