A loan of $2,600 helped a member to repair an enclosure for pigs.

Parachichi Group's story

Hilda B. is in her early thirties, married, and the mother of two children, one attending school and the other a baby. Hilda owns a cow whose milk she sells, a business she has operated since 2008. She works from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Hilda's fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to establish a chicken business and a pig business, neither of which succeeded. She then bought the cow for milk-selling. Having repaid all of her previous loans, she will use this one to repair an enclosure for pigs. Her dream is to one day have a big farm for a variety of animals.

Hilda will share this loan with her loan group "Parachichi" which has a total of 16 members. The group members will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
