A loan of $750 helped a member to buy a new brander (juicer) to replace the defect.


Usalama Group's story

Msichoke is a mother of two kids, one of whom is at school while the other is still a baby. Msichokee is married and for three years now, she has had a business selling fresh juice. She makes her own juices, and opens the business from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. each working day, and is able to make a very small profit. Msichoke is requesting a third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy a juicer which is now defective, but she will replace it with a new one. After the previous loans, Msichoke started making other types of juices which she hadn't made before. She managed to pay back all of her loans. Msichoke used the profit to cover school fees and home food expenses. With her new loan, Msichoke will buy a new brander (juicer) to replace the defect. She dreams of renting a good business place. She will share this loan with her loan group "USALAMA" which totals three members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Msichoke, Shamila, Doris
