Upendo Mloganzira Group's story

Upendo F., who is in her early thirties, is married with two children. For the past year, her business has been selling second-hand shoes from door to door. She works from 11:00am to 4:00pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Upendo's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She hopes for a loan to increase her capital. Her dream is to open a shop and start selling shoes in one place.

Upendo will share this loan with her loan group Upendo Mloganzila. The group has a total of 19 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.
