Ngorongoro Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy dagga (small dry fish) for selling.
Ngorongoro Group's story
Maria, who is is her early 40s, is married with five children. Three of her children are in school while two are grown. For three years now, Maria has been managing her family by running a business selling dagga (small dry fish). She sells them from 7am to 2pm per working day and is able to make a small monthly profit. This will be Maria's third loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, Maria bought stock of dagaa to meet her business plan. She used the profit she earned to cover school fees, home and medical expenses. Maria will use this loan to buy dagaa for selling. She dreams of being a seller of dagaa up-countries. She will share this loan with her loan group "Ngorongoro," which totals two members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
