A loan of $3,325 helped a member to start a poultry business.


Nuru-Lumo Group's story

Charity M., age 48, is married with three children, ages 22, 18 and 14. She has operated a general store business for ten years now. She works from 6:30am to 10pm daily and is able to make a monthly profit of about $168.

This will be Charity’s 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase her business sales and has paid back the loan successfully. She hopes for a new loan to start a poultry business.

Charity will share this loan with her loan group, Nuru-Lumo, which totals fifteen members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
