Mt Meru Group's story

Sabina, who is single, is running a business of sarongs and fabrics for two years now. She is in her early 40s. Sabina works from 8am to 9pm and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be Sabina's 9th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more fabrics and sarongs and has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to cover household expenses and bought a plot of land. She will use this loan to buy more new babies' and adult clothing and shoes to sell in the coming Christmas holiday season. She dreams of owning a wholesale shop. She will share this loan with her loan group, "Mt Meru", which has a total of four members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
