A loan of $1,525 helped a member to buy new shoes to resell..


Chimbuko Group's story

Muhibu, who is a single man in his mid-30s, has two children who are in school.

For six years now, Muhibu has had a business selling shoes for men, women and children. He normally runs his shop from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his 17th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Muhibu paid back his previous loans fully, and he purchased more business stocks, especially ladies' shoes, for his shop. With his business profit, he covered school fees, family food and medical expenses. Muhibu also bought a plot of land.

With this loan, he will buy new shoes to resell in his shop. Muhibu hopes to build a house.

He will share this loan with his loan group, "Chimbuko," which totals five members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Muhibu, Rehema, Bellow, Saidi, James
