A loan of $950 helped a member to start selling soft drinks in her restaurant.

Usalama Group's story

Subira, who is in her early 40s, is a widow with two daughters; one is in school. For three years now, Subira has been running mamalishe food business and cosmetics door-to-door. She sells her cosmetics on credit to known customers and allows them to pay monthly after they get paid their salary; unknown people are asked to pay cash. She starts working from 09am and works to 11pm every working day and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her first loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania which she will use to start selling soft drinks in her restaurant. Subira dreams to have a good life. She will share this loan with her loan group "Usalama" which totals five members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Subira, Abibie, Amina, Fatuma, Zakaria
