A loan of $2,325 helped a member to repair his business premises to look attractive.


Mavuno Group's story

Shekha, who is in his late 20s, is single. For three years now, Shekha has been running several businesses: a barber shop and a shop selling mobile accessories. He works from 6:00am to 10:00pm per working day and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his eighth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. With his previous loans, all of which were paid back successfully, he managed to buy phone accessories and opened his barbershop. With the business profit received, he covered household expenses, reinvested back to the business, and saved the remains. Shekha will use this loan to repair his business premises to look attractive. He dreams that one day he will be able to build a house.

He will share this loan with his loan group "MAVUNO" which totals 9 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Shekha, Pili, Dharau, Mohamed, Ally, Mussa, Ashura, Kisala, Barnaba
