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

A loan helped to buy sacks of freshwater fishes to sell them in other regions.

Utulivu Group's story

Elizeus, who is in his early 30s, is married with two children; one is in school. He also lives with his relatives. For three years and six months now, he has been engaged in business, selling freshwater fishes. He sells them at the street and other regions. He starts working from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the street per working day and is able to earn a small monthly profit. This will be his second loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With his previous loan, which he repaid in full, he increased fish stock to meet his expanded market demand. Elizeus used his profit to buy a plot of land and reinvested back into the business. He also covered school fees and house expenses. He will use this loan to buy sacks of freshwater fishes to sell in other regions. He dreams to own a big business and transport. He will share this loan with his loan group, Utulivu, which totals two members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
