A loan of $1,550 helped a member to buy cosmetics for her store.

Mabibo Freedom Group's story

Mariamu is in her early 40s and has two daughters and one son who are in school. Mariamu is a widowed mother who makes her living by managing two businesses. She manages a charcoal store and a shop selling cosmetics. Mariamu has been in these businesses for five years now and is able to make a very good monthly profit. She opens her shop from 8 am to 9 pm each working day.

From Tujijenge Tanzania, this is her tenth loan request which she will use to buy cosmetics for her shop. Mariamu used the previous loans (all of which paid back successfully) to start her store of charcoal and buy stock of cosmetics. Mariamu generated a profit, which she used to build a house and paid for her children's school fees and improve her family welfare. She dreams of improving her family life by owning a nice car.

Mariamu will share this loan with her loan group" Mabibo Freedom" which totals two members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Mariamu, Husna
