A loan of $3,525 helped a member to buy chicken feed.


Tembo Mgwaza Group's story

Mary K., who is in her early thirties, is married with five children. She has had a chicken business for 12 years. She works from 5:00am to 8:00pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Mary's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to start the chicken business, sold fabrics and also bought a plot of land. She has paid back her loans successfully. She hopes for a new loan to buy chicken feed. Her dream is to have a big space where she can have a good number of chickens.

Mary will share this loan with her loan group "Tembo Mgwaza", which has a total of 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
