A loan of $3,800 helped a member to buy more sacks of charcoal, more equipment for shoe repair, and more shoes to resell.


Kitungu Group's story

Mustafa, who is in his mid-30s, is married with two children, one son and one daughter. Both are going to school.

He has been running two types of businesses. One is buying shoes to sell and repairing shoes. He has also been selling charcoal for a year and a half now. He works from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, and he is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Mustafa's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to start selling charcoal, and he also bought more shoes to resell and repaired more shoes because he had managed to get better shoe repair.

He is really happy with the loan because now he is leaving a happy life. He used the profit to pay school fees and household expenses, and he also bought a plot of land.

He will use this loan to buy more sacks of charcoal, more equipment for shoe repair, and more shoes to resell. He dreams of expanding his business.

Mustafa will share this loan with his loan group "KITUNGU," which has three members who hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Mustafa, Clemencia, Scholastika
