A loan of $2,050 helped a member increase capital and buy more spare parts.


Fahari Yetu Group's story

Saidi J., age 40, is married with five children ages 16, 13, 9, 7 and 4. He has a garage which he started in 2000. He works from 8am to 7pm, daily. Saidi is able to earn a monthly profit of around $336.

This will be Said’s sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the five loans to increase stock by buying spare parts, compressors and paint and has paid the loans back successfully. He now hopes for a new loan to increase capital and to buy more spare parts.

Said will share this loan with subgroup C of the Fahari Yetu group. The subgroup has six members who run cafes and general stores. These members hold each other accountable for repaying their loans. In the picture, Said is the only man.

In this group: Saidi, Laila, Amina, Leokadia, Fatuma, Ashula
