Urafiki Group's story

Lucas is a married man with two boys; one of them is in school. Lucas, who is in his early 40s, has been running a business of manufacturing furniture, where he makes chairs, sofa sets, etc. He has been in this business for eight years now. He works from 7 am to 6 pm each day, and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be his fourth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which he paid in full, he bought business raw materials: mattresses, woods, and nails. He used his business profit to pay school fees, household expenses, and saved for his children.

He will use this loan to buy wood and mattresses to make furniture to sell.

Lucas is thankfull for our business product, and he dreams of owning a big business.

He will share this loan with his loan group, "URAFIKI", which has two members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Lucas, Marystella
