A loan of $2,125 helped a member to increase her stock of food and snacks.

Uwele Group's story

Hamida M., who is in her mid-thirties, is married. She sells food and "bites" (snacks) to school children at a school just outside the city centre. She works from 9:30am to 5:00pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Hamida's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She wants a loan to increase her stock of food and snacks. Her dream is to have a wholesale shop selling hardware.

Hamida will share this loan with her loan group, Uwele, which has a total of 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loans.
