A loan of $2,475 helped a member to buy chicken feed.


Jitegemee Group's story

Irene C., age 43, is a widow with three children, ages 23, 18 and 16 years. She has had a poultry business for one year now. She works from 6 am to 9 pm daily and she is able to make a monthly profit of about $201.

This will be Irene’s second Motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A Motisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. Irene hopes for another Motisha loan to buy chicken feed. Irene will share this loan with her loan group Jitegemee which has 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
