A loan of $3,925 helped a member to open a small shop and start selling wheat flour, sweets, biscuits, groundnuts and sugar.


Crane Group's story

Sandary K., who is in her mid-forties, is married with five children. She has been operating a food vendor business for four years. She works from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (only seven hours) and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Sandary's sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her business and to pay school fees and bus fare for her children. She has repaid her loans successfully. Sandary hopes for a loan to open a small shop and to start selling wheat flour, sweets, biscuits, groundnuts and sugar. Her dream is to one day open a stationery shop.

Sandary will share this loan with her loan group "Crane", which consists of 18 members, who will hold each other accountable in repaying their loans. In the photo, Sandary is in front in an orange dress.

In this group: Sandary, Dorah, Jamila, Mariam, Perpetud, Agness, Juma, Modest, Rashid, Rehema, Freskus, Abdallah, Fabian, Albano, Hassani, Joseph, Kiliani, Mwadodo
