A loan of $3,875 helped a member to increase on stock of vouchers and sodas.

Beatrice James's Jumuiya Kiluvya Group's story

Beatrice J., age 42, is single with two children (ages 25 and 18). She has a business of selling vouchers which she started 3 years ago. She works from 7.30am to 7pm daily and is able to make a monthly profit of about $60.

In the past, Beatrice has taken out three previous loans from Tujijenge Tanzania to start selling sodas. She paid back her loans successfully. She hopes for a new loan to increase her stock of sodas and vouchers. Beatrice will share this loan with her group, Jumuiya Kuluvya, which totals 16 members. These members hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
