A loan of $3,550 helped a member to buy a TV and start selling spirits.


Khanga Group's story

Havinitishi N., who is in her middle thirties, is married with two sons and two daughters. She has been running a grocery business selling beer, soda and water for two years. She works from 4 p.m. to 12 p.m. and is able to earn a monthly profit of about $92.

This will be Havinitishi’s 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She has successfully paid back her previous loans which she used to increase her stock and bought empty beer crates and chairs.

Havinitishi hopes for this loan so that she can buy a TV and also start selling spirits. Her dream is to buy a car that she can use to carry her grocery products.

Havinitishi will share this loan with her loan group, Khanga, which totals fifteen members. The members of the group hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
