A loan of $4,500 helped a member to increase her stock of plates and cutlery at her fish restaurant.


Momela Group's story

Mwajuba J. is in her late thirties and is married with four children. Majuba has been running a small fish restaurant for the past 20 years. The shop is open between 11:00 am and 04:00 pm daily and earns Mwajuba a low monthly profit.

This will be Mwajuba's fourth loan with Tujijenge Tanzania. Mwajuba used her previous loans to buy land and started to build a new house for herself. These loans have since been successfully repaid. Mwajuba will use her fourth loan to increase basic supplies for the shop, such as plates, buckets, cutlery and cups. Mwajuba's dream is to one day finish her house.

Mwajuba will share this loan with her loan group Momela, which totals 19 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loans.
