A loan of $975 helped a member to buy bananas and buckets of cooking oil to resell.

Pilika Pilika Group's story

Husein is a married father of three children, who are all in school. He is aged in his mid-thirties and is from Tujijenge, in Tanzania.

Since 1990, Husein has been running two businesses: a stall selling fruit and vegetables, and a retail shop. He opens his businesses from 7am to 7:30pm each working day, and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This is Husein's fourth loan request, and he will use this loan to buy bananas and buckets of cooking oil to resell. He used his previous loans (all of which he paid back successfully) to restock his stall with bananas for making food, fruits and vegetables. Husein also bought a fridge to keep soft drinks. He used his business profit to buy 200 bricks for house building, covered school fees and home food expenses. Husein dreams of expanding his business and improving his family life.

He will share this loan with his loan group "PILIKA PILIKA" which has three members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Husein, Adelina, Suzana
