A loan of $1,750 helped a member to buy equipment for her beauty salon.


Dove Group's story

Irene, who is in her mid-twenties, is married with a school-age daughter. For three years now, Irene has been supporting her family by running a beauty salon. She is doing great with her business and is able to make a good return per month. Irene opens her salon from 8.00 am to 10.00 pm every working day.

This will be Irene's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she will use to buy more equipment for her salon in order to service more clients. With her previous loan, all of which she paid back successfully, she also restocked her salon with new equipment. She used her profit to cover her daughter's school fees and home expenses. Irene dreams of making her salon big and user-friendly.

She will share this loan with her loan group" DOVE”, which comprises of three members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Irene, Helena, Bernadeta
