A loan of $2,025 helped a member to buy more salon equipment.


Mtazamo Group's story

Sara, who is in her early 30s, is married with two children. One of her children goes to school and the other one is still small. She has been running a beauty salon since 2010. She works from 8 am to 9 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Sara's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to buy a steaming machine and more salon equipment and has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to buy a TV set and a radio and pay household expenses. She will use this loan to buy more salon equipment, especially the items in high demand. She dreams of having an international salon.

Sara will share this loan with her loan group Mtazamo, which has six members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Sara, Haidary, Hadija, Kasimu, Japhet, Ally
