A loan of $4,775 helped a member to buy more chicks and chicken feed.

Mshikamano Tegeta Group's story

Maria C. is in her early twenties and is married with one child. Maria has been running her own business with chickens that lay eggs for the past three years. The business is open daily between 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and earns Maria a moderate monthly profit.

This will be Maria's first loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. With this loan, Maria hopes to buy more chickens, as well as chicken feed. Maria's dream is to one day open a shop where she can sell food wholesale.

Maria will share this loan with her loan group, Mshikamano, that totals sixteen members. The members of the group will hold each other responsible for repaying the loan.
