A loan of $3,300 helped a member to improve her beauty salon by expanding the size of the premises and painting it a nice color.


Tujikomboe Kitopeni Group's story

Siwajibu is a married woman with a baby girl who is three months old. Since 2006, she has been running a beauty salon business. Siwajibu works from 6 am to 8 pm each working day, and is able to make a small return each month.

This will be her first loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania; she will use it to improve her beauty salon by expanding the size of the premises and painting it a nice color.

With the previous loans (all of which paid back successfully), she bought a business generator to maintain her business service in case the electricity is shut off. Siwajibu managed also to put a new electricity machine, which currently provides electricity for every power user. With the business profit, she covered part of the home expenses, and reinvested back to the business. She dreams of improving her venture, and opening another successful one.

Siwajibu will share this loan with her loan group, " Tujikomboe Kitopeni", which consist of nine members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Siwajibu, Athuman, Mohamedi, Sengunda, Wambura, Amina, Sudi, Mussa, Abdalah
