A loan of $2,200 helped a member to buy more stock of tomatoes.

Jeep Group's story

Bitrosy C., 23 years old, is single. He has operated a business selling tomatoes for 5 years. He is really a hardworking young boy. He travels upcountry to collect and buy tomatoes and then sells them in different markets in the city center. He works from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is able to make a monthly profit of about $197.

This will be Bitrosy’s first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He hopes for a loan so that he may travel further for a good stock of tomatoes for his business. Bitrosy will share this loan with his loan group, Jeep. The 16 members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
