A loan of $4,325 helped a member to increase her business stock.


Twidike Group's story

Elizabeth R., who is in her early 40s, is married with five children. She has a table in the market where she sells fruits and vegetables. She uses the other side of the table to sell rice, sugar and beans. She started this business five years ago and works daily from 8am until 10pm. She is able to earn a fair monthly profit.

This will be Elizabeth’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase stock for her business and has repaid the loan successfully. She now hopes for a second loan to buy more stock of the same products. Elizabeth will share this loan with her loan group, Twidike, which totals 19 members. The members of the group hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
