A loan of $1,575 helped a member to buy a big stock of medicines to take upcountry.


Jonscorner B Group's story

Rahim L., age 50, is married with 3 children (ages 28, 21, and 18). He is also taking care of his wife's late brother's son, who is 15. He sells medicine for animals in villages upcountry, and when he comes back he manages his small farm with various crops. He started this business 1 year ago. He opens from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily and is able to make around $800 monthly profit.


In the past, Rahim has taken out 1 loan from Tujijenge Tanzania to increase his business and to start a chicken business. He hopes for a new loan to buy more medicines because he has big orders from Masai people for their animals. Rahim will share this loan with subgroup B, who sell food, fish, snacks, juice, and bread. This subgroup belongs to the Jonscorner group, whose members monitor each other in paying back the loans.
