Express Group's story

Zurekha is the leader of this ten-member group. She is a widow in her mid-fifties who has five grown children. She also has two grandchildren, both of whom are in school.

For the past five years Zurekha has sold clothes and tie-dyed fabrics, among other things. She works from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Zurekha’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy clothes to sell and tie-dye materials. She is doing great. She paid back her loan successfully and used her profits to pay for her grandchildren's school fees plus food and household needs.

Zurekha is now applying for a 3,320,000 TZS loan to be apportioned among those in her group. With her portion she plans to buy more clothes, fabric and fruits and vegetables to sell. She dreams of enlarging her tie-dye business and raising and selling poultry.

In this group: Zurekha, Pambo, Asha, Mwanahawa, Filberto, Mariam, Asha, Winfred, Yotam, Hamida
