A loan of $3,675 helped a member increase on food stock.

Mt Kipengele Group's story

Husna M. is 19 years old and is the single mother of a ten-month-old girl. Three months ago, Husna started her own food vending business to support herself and her child. The business offers ready-made food from 06:00 am until 08:00 pm and earns her a low monthly profit.

This will be Husna's first loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. She aims to use the loan to increase her stock of certain basic supplies such as rice, flour and cooking oil. By buying this in bulk, she will also be able to get favorable prices. Husna's dream is to one day expand her business into a restaurant and to employ people to help her.

Husna will share this loan with her loan group Mt Kipengele, which totals 21 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.
