A loan of $3,900 helped a member to increase the stock of fruits and vegetables.


Chamwino Group's story

Rukia S., who is in her early 30s, is married and has two daughters. She has been running a fruits and vegetables business since 2005. She works from 4:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Rukia's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She hopes for a loan to increase the fruits and vegetables she sells. Her dream is to one day open a dispensary because she is a qualified nurse.

Rukia will share this loan with her loan group, "Chamwino," which has a total of 17 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
