A loan of $1,825 helped a member to start up and improve her little salon.


Mtetwa's Group's story

Mtetwa, 26, is married with one son of 2 years old. She owns a video library in Mwananyamala. She started this business three years ago and works daily from 8am until 10pm. She is able to earn a monthly profit of about US$ 217.



This will be Mtetwa’s third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the first two to increase the inventory of her library, and she wants to open a beauty salon so she has started to buy things for the salon and has paid the loans back successfully. She now hopes for a new loan to improve the salon.



Mtetwa will share this loan with subgroup B of the Serena group. The subgroup has 8 members who run shops, a salon, and sell cosmetics, food, and shoes. These members hold each other accountable in paying back their loans. In the picture, Mtetwa is second from right front row.

In this group: Mtetwa, Mate, Asha, Augustino, Rehema, Abdallah, Gaby , Stamili
