A loan of $4,650 helped a member to buy a fridge.

Faith Group's story

Aisha M., who is in her early thirties, is single with three children. She has been running a food sales business for five years. She works from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Aisha's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy plates, chairs and food. She has successfully repaid her loan. Aisha hopes for a loan to buy a fridge to start selling cold drinks and ice cream. Her dream is to one day build her own house and to have her children obtain higher education.

Aisha will share this loan with her loan group, Faith, which consists of 20 members, who will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
