A loan helped to buy a bicycle and chickens for his poultry business.

Amani Group- Lumumba's story

Omary is in his early 50's. He is a married father of 9 children, 2 boys and 7 girls, all are still in school. He sells broiler chickens in the market. He purchase chickens at wholesale prices from the poultry farmers then he resells them at retail prices. He has been into this business for over 20 years. He works daily from 6 in the morning to 6 in the evening. He earns profit that he uses to support his family needs.

This will be Omary's 1st loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. He is applying for this loan to buy more chickens to sale and to purchase a bicycle to reduce transport cost when he visits poultry farmers to buy chicken. His dream is to open a chicken butcher business.

Omary will share a portion of this loan with his loan group members of "Amani" group Lumumba. They promise to be responsible for paying back the loan.
