A loan of $1,025 helped a member to buy sacks of charcoal to resell.


Muungano - Beach Group's story

Jamila, who is in her mid 30s, is single with three children, two of whom go to school, and the other one is still small. She has been running a charcoal business for four years now. She works from 5 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Jamila's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase her charcoal stock, and has paid back her loan successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and covered household expenses. She will also use this loan to buy sacks of charcoal to resell. She dreams of making her family progressive.

Jamila will share this loan with her loan group, "Muungano - Beach," which has three members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Jamila, Christina, Doto
