A loan of $2,625 helped a member to buy more wood to make furniture.


Mapatano Group's story

Enilika, who is in her early 40s, is married with five children who are still in school. She has been selling furniture for seven years now. She works from 8 am to 6 pm daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be Enilika's fifth loan form Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy good types of wood and managed to make fast class furniture. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees, to start building her house and to pay household expenses. She will use this loan to buy more wood for making more furniture. She dreams of opening a workshop for displaying her furniture.

Enilika will share this loan with her loan group "Mapatano", which has five members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Enilika, Jackline, Leila, Salimu, Zuhura
