Saiberia Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more food items to sell to her customers.

Saiberia Group's story

Joyce is in her late 30's, married and has three children. For the last year, she has earned a living as a food vendor. She works from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and makes a good monthly profit. She is applying for her second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Joyce used her first loan to buy more items to sell to her customers, and will use the new one to do the same thing. Her dream is to one day have enough money to open a hotel. Joyce will share this loan with her group, Saiberia, which has 16 members, each of whom holds the others accountable for making repayments.
