A loan of $3,175 helped a member to buy fabric to sell and materials to make bed sheets.


Malila Group's story

Tatu, who is in her late 20s, is married with two children, one of whom goes to school and the other is still small. She has been selling fabrics and bed sheets for two years now. She works from 4 pm to 6 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit. This will be Tatu's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy materials to make bed sheets and to buy fabrics. She sells her products door to door and has managed to pay back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees, to cover household expenses and to start building her house. She is happy with the loan and appreciates everyone who supported the Malila group with the loan. She will use this loan to buy good materials to make up-to-date bedsheets and to increase her stock of fabrics. Her dream is to finish building her house. Tatu will share this loan with her loan group "Malila", which has four members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Tatu, Veronica, Furaha, Omari
