A loan of $4,150 helped a member improve her fruit and vegetable stall and buy more second-hand clothes.


Nguvu Moja Group's story

Magreth S. is in her early twenties. She is a single mother of a four-month-old baby. Magreth has been running two businesses for the past four months. Her main business is a fruit and vegetable stall, but she also sells used clothing. Both businesses are open from 07:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. and earn Magreth a small monthly profit.

This will be Magreth's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She aims to use the loan to improve the condition of her vegetable stall and stock up on more second-hand clothes. Magreth's goal is to use her profit to improve the conditions of her new room, into which she has recently moved.

Magreth will share this loan with her loan group, Nguvu Moja, which totals 18 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying their loans.
