A loan of $1,325 helped a member to buy more sacks of charcoal to resell.

Faraja Grp Group's story

Philiphilina is a mother of one schooling kid while the rest are grown. She is in her early 50s and married. She has been supporting her family by managing a business selling charcoal, a business she has been doing since 2000. Philiphilina needs to improve her business by owning a big store, where she can store more sacks of charcoal and meet customer's demands. To meet her ambition, she joined Faraja group, with two members to seek financial support via Tujijenge Tanzania. The members of the group will hold each other accountable to repay the loan. She works from 7 am to 6 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly return.

This is her fifth loan request, which she will use to buy more sacks of charcoal to resell. She dreams of expanding her portfolio by opening a successful shop. Philiphilina used the previous loans, since repaid, to keep her business stock stable (she bought sacks of charcoal). With the good job she has done, she earned extra income, which she used to cover part of the school fees and home expenses. Philiphilina is so thankful with everyone who takes the time to go through her story and support.
