Iringa 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 local chicken to resell.

Iringa Group's story

Soka, who is his early 30s, is married with one small child. He has been selling local chicken since 2006. He works from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit. This will be his sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy a plot, build a moderate house in the village, marry a wife, buy five cows, and cover household expenses. He has paid back all his loans successfully. He wants a loan to buy more local chicken to resell. His dream is to one day be able to have a house in Dar. Soka will share this loan with his loan group, Iringa, which has a total of 15 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
