Puma Group's story

Lameck A., who is in his mid-forties, is a divorcee, and has three children, aged 17, 13 and 9. In the photo, he is the only man.

Lameck currently runs a fruit and vegetable stall, as well as selling baskets. He has been doing this for almost twenty years, and works daily between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. He currently makes a fair monthly profit.

This will be Lameck’s first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. With this loan, he aims to increase his stock of baskets. His dream is to earn enough money to build his own house, and he strongly believes that increasing his stock of baskets will help achieve this dream.

Lameck will share this loan with his loan group, Puma, which totals sixteen members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.

In this group: Lameck, Tatu, Fatuma, Jamila, Aminata, Hadija, Hana, Mariam, Farida, Mariam, Gloria, Sophia, Hana, Anna, Nzana, Hidaya
