A loan of $2,775 helped a member increase capital in order to buy more products.

Lukundo Group's story

Flora Kinjami is in her early forties, married, and has 6 children. She has a business selling brooms, potatoes, and onions from Iringa to Moshi which she has been operating since 2005. The business runs between 4am and 10 am and earns Flora quite a low monthly profit.

This will be Flora's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Flora aims to use this loan to increase her capital, buy more products, say twice a month, and to reduce moving upcountry every week. Flora's dream is to one day open a charcoal shop and sell at wholesale price.

Flora will share this loan with her loan group Lukundo, which totals 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.
