A loan of $2,325 helped a member to buy stock for his general store business.

Prado Group's story

Alexander, who is in his early 30s, is married with two children, one of whom goes to school and the other one is still small. He has been running a general store since 2006. He works from 7am to 9pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Alexander's 10th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to stock fast moving items, and has paid back all his loans successfully. He is a hard working fellow and it shows. He is grateful to all who have supported his group, Prado, with a loan. With his profit, he bought a plot of land, built his house, bought a TV set, a radio, a sofa set, a mattress, a bed and covered house hold expenses. He will use this loan to buy sugar, beans, salt, maize flour, backing flour, and cigarettes, which are the fast moving items. He dreams of buying a motorcycle.

Alexander will share this loan with his loan group, Prado, which has a total of three members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Alexander, Paulo, Marry
