Machimbo Group's story

Kaeni, who is in his mid 20s, is single. He has been running a barber shop business for three years now. He works from 8.00 am to 10.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Kaeni's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy a TV set, radio and two new chairs, all for salon use. He is doing great with his salon. Since he started getting loans from Tujijenge, he has been able to get the salon up to date and is getting more and more customers. He is happy with the loan. He has paid back all his previous loans successfully. He used the profit to buy a sofa set, fridge, radio and to cover household expenses.

Kaeni will use this loan to buy more salon equipment in order to attract more customers. He dreams of continuing to improve his salon.

Kaeni will share this loan with his loan group, "Machimbo," which has four members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Kaeni, Mohamed, Michael, Hadija
