Venezuela Group's story

Aranyaeli U. is in his early forties and is married with four children. Aranyaeli has been running his own transportation business for the past nine years. He owns a bajaji (rickshaw) and a tipper (dump truck). He runs his business daily between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and it earns Aranyaeli a good monthly profit.

This will be Aranyaeli's third loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his previous loans to build his savings and buy land. With this loan, Aranyaeli hopes to begin building on his land.

Aranyaeli will share this loan with his loan group, Venezuela, that totals seventeen members. Aranyaeli serves as the secretary of the group. The members of the group will hold each other responsible for repaying the loan.
