Nigeria Group's story

Jambo (hello) from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania!

This is Dafrosa N. and the Nigeria loan group. Dafrosa is 42 years old, married, and has three children. Her son is the eldest at 21 years old, and her daughters are 17 and 10. All three of them are in school.

Dafrosa is a butcher by trade, and has been in the business since 2007. Her butcher shop opens at 7 a.m. every day, and closes whenever she runs out of meat or the stream of customers has ended. She estimates that she makes about 240,000 Tanzanian shillings per month, or about $180 dollars.

This will be Dafrosa's first loan from Tujijenge. She will use it to purchase more beef ("nyama ya ng'ombe" in Kiswahili), and a refrigerator that will help her preserve meat for longer and therefore reduce the amount she has to throw away. She hopes this will help her increase her profits.

In the photo, Dafrosa is standing in the back row on the left wearing a pink scarf. She is shown with the other members of her group, most of whom are food vendors in nearby markets. The Nigeria loan group thanks you for your support!
