Mikumi Group's story

Anjelina P., who is in her late thirties, is married with 5 sons and one daughter. She has operated several different businesses for the past 10 years. Angelina operates a retail shop where she sells food items, including Irish potatoes. She also has a food vending business. And if these two businesses did not keep her busy enough, she also sells fabric door-to-door. She is really a hard working lady. She works from 6am to 8pm and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Anjelina’s 11th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to open her retail shop and food vending business. She has paid back her loans successfully. She will use this loan to increase the shop inventory and to buy more Irish potatoes.

Anjelina will share this loan with her loan group, Mikumi, which totals 16 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
