A loan of $4,100 helped a member to buy more fruit to sell.

Ebeneza Group's story

Redemia is in her early thirties and is married with a small child who is in school.

For the past four years Redemia has been selling fruit, other small food items and tea. She works from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. each day and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Redemia’s fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She will share this loan with her loan group. The group is called “Ebeneza” and has 21 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

Redemia used her previous loans to buy more small food items to sell along with her tea and has successfully paid back all of her loans. She hopes for a loan to sell more fruit. Her dream is to own her own restaurant where she can sell drinks, chips, meat and other food items.

In this group: Redemia, Justine, Sophia, Victoria, Mohamed*, Emmanuel, Josephina, Abetina, Mariam, Lucy, Avelina, Hassan, Annes, Fransica, Hellena, Christina, Dorothea, Maria, Moza, Victoria, Neema
