Nyeupe Group's story

Mambo! Greetings from Tanzania.

Meet Bakari A. and the Nyeupe group from Dar es Salaam. The group's name means "white" in Kiswahili. Bakari is a 44-year-old father of two, aged 23 and 2. He is married and has been running a business selling livestock for three years in the Mlandizi district of Dar es Salaam. Bakari sells live chickens and goats from 6:45 am to 6 pm daily. He makes approximately $150 per month.

This is Bakari's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, Ltd. He used the first loan to buy cement to make blocks because he is building a small house. He also used it for "kilimo" (agriculture) to grow "mpunga" (rice). Bakari will use this loan to buy cement to make more blocks, to continue growing rice, and to purchase more live chickens for his business.

In the photo, Bakari is sitting in the front row toward the left, wearing glasses. He will share this loan with the members of his group. They will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan on time. The Nyeupe group from Tanzania thanks you for your support!

In this group: Bakari, Mohamedi, Marian, Mohamedi, Issah, Jitihada, Nassoro, Kazi, Loyce, Augustino, Neema, Magreth, Rehema, Hadija, Salama, Shabani
