A loan of $2,900 helped a member to increase her stock of tomatoes and onions.

Neema-Kimara Group's story

Sada M. is in her mid-forties and is married with three children. Sada runs a fruit and vegetable stall from which she sells tomatoes and onions. She has been doing this since 2000. The stall is open between 6:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and earns Sada a low monthly profit.

This will be Sada's third Motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A Mothisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania that allows borrowers with good credit ratings to pay back their original loans faster and receive extra money before their original loan term has ended. Sada used her previous loans to increase her stock of onions. These loans have since been successfully repaid. With this loan, Sada aims to increase her stock of tomatoes as well. Sada's dream is to one day buy a sewing machine and start making her own clothing.

Sada will share this loan with her loan group Neema-Kimara, which totals 21 members, who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans. In the photo, Sada can be seen in the first row, wearing a black blouse and a pink head cover.

In this group: Sada, Magreth, Sarah, Mwanaid, Mawazo*, Anna, Andrew, Nelly , Zaina, Mariamu, Naomi, Mohamed, Rosemery , Agnes, Rehema, Shela, Theresia, Kalista, Frola, Mohamed, Zainabu
